puzzling dream sentence - who can help? - 1514 views

I have a strange question / request:
Unfortunately I am not Latin (I had the math branch in school); Nevertheless, a supposedly Latin sentence haunted my brain the other day in a dream. I tried to translate it meaningfully with the help of online dictionaries. Unsuccessful.
- Can someone help me and solve this riddle?

The sentence was: "in replica est" (or something like that ...)

Thank you, if someone finds the time and inclination for an answer!
Best regards,
a backworlder

That does not make sense. It is certainly not a Latin sentence.

see:
Replĭca (Italian), the repetition of a melody sung by another voice

Hey


So far, I don't see any mystery.

You could have meant: What does the “supposedly Latin” sentence mean? Is that a Latin sentence? Or: Where did I get it from when I didn't learn Latin?

Nobody will be able to make a correct Latin sentence out of it. It sounds Latin because of the word order, the words (est), the word stems (replic). So you recognized very well from which corner your dream thoughts came.

Did the connection to the appeal that is in the sentence (replica: replica, replica: metal core band) fit with the dream? Did it fit that the sentence sounds Latin?

Isn't that more of a mystery?

Since he woke up too early, we will probably not find out what is in the reply.

Thank you for your efforts!!

I was afraid it was some nonsense. But of course I still hoped that some wise wisdom would come out of it. Thank you for trying to translate!

@ Klaus: The idea of ​​“re publica” instead of “replica” would make sense of the whole thing, but firstly I can rule out that it was (I already memorized the sentence so intensely in my dream because I definitely don't understood) and secondly, my dreams are not that political ... :-)


Just a little "secondary question":
In an online dictionary for "replica" I found the corresponding verb "replicare" and the translation was "roll up (e.g. a scroll), reply". I was astonished and a bit surprised by these meanings, because at first I actually thought of “replication” / “repetition”.

Is the online dictionary wrong? Or does the word have several meanings?

Anyway, thanks for your attempts! And it's a shame that it wasn't a great wisdom that I can write in every poetry album from now on! :-)

@Filix:
Now I get it:
So you mean it could be called
"Is in the reply"!?

... And unfortunately I actually woke up too early, or without further memories of the dream. Just this sentence - and it won't let me go because I don't understand it! This was the only way he could survive the waking up phase from the dream.
Re: enigmatic dream phrase - who can help?


It can do that in Lat. in no way called. The word combination is not possible / nonsensical.

replica would be an imperative. replica = roll back / on etc.

No dream woman / man without a dream. Without a nightmare ... :)

As long as the dream does not become trauma, dreaming should not be a problem.

PS:
At the moment there only seem to be fantastic returns from real estate speculation.
But will it also work out sometime / soon? have dreamed up. If the real estate bubble bursts, the dream of many speculators also bursts.
If interest rates rise, a risky dream home can quickly turn into a nightmare. If the job is still gone because the economy starts to stutter,
the chaos is programmed. If that's not enough, private problems take care of the rest.
The fantastically cheap money seems to make many forget that debts have to be paid back. If you can only repay 1% per year, you will still have 90% debt after 10 years.

Everything cheap has its price. The numbers currently the (small) savers.
Messrs. Draghi, Schäuble & Co. are still dreaming of solving all problems
by means of cheap money. This, too, could quickly turn into a nightmare if the specter of deflation turns into a bitter reality and a recession looms.
Nothing is free in this world. Nobody seems to really want to admit this fact anymore. Maybe behind it. the naive dream is that everything will be over
to dissolve enough banknotes with pleasure. But the same applies to the bank note: The note is deceptive.
In this sense: Happy dreaming, home builders! Will be fine - or not.
Time will tell.

in replica esse: Well, certainly not a good, let alone classy Latin and can probably not be proven in this phrase anywhere.
Re: enigmatic dream phrase - who can help?
It has never been claimed that he dreams of classical Latin (has that happened to any of you?) - "eat in" with Abl. for “standing in a script” you can look up in Georges that “replica” in Mlat. and later also circulated as the title of fonts, can easily be found out in the age of search engines.

Here I raise an objection, the one you mentioned is my friend.

There is another Zoff at any price. The best thing to do is to ignore such people.
You should rather look for a good psychologist instead of constantly producing and letting off steam in forums like this one.
But that’s it from my side for good. Otherwise the old circus will start again, which rightly nobody wants to have anymore - except for a quarrel urgently in need of treatment.

I'll ignore the squabbles (and "financial tips") here in the room and go back to the real question:

Does it mean something now? And if so: WHAT?

Or have I (as a non-Latin) maybe just misunderstood it a bit or wrote it down and there is a similar variant that would mean something meaningful?

Is “in replica esse” such a variant? What does that mean then?

When I woke up, I wasn't 100% sure whether it actually meant "est". Could have been called "os" (or something like that). But that would make even less sense, I'm afraid. The dream memory also increasingly fades ...

In fact, I keep dreaming in foreign languages. So far, however, only in those that I have mastered well. In fact, I never learned Latin. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that the "dream Latin" will be error-free and grammatically perfect ... ;-)

That's why I'm counting on your help! In any case, thank you to everyone who has already tried to get a translation!
Re: enigmatic dream phrase - who can help?


It could mean “to be in the reply” (filix wrote it in italics above).

The backwoodsman * actually had an unclassical dream, hard to believe. To quote arbiter: ouch

As usual. We have to agree on lower and upper case letters for "you", otherwise someone might think that I am just as pathetic as him and that I need sock puppets here.



Heheheh, you let go of one again. Did you take the wrong pills today? Unfortunately, the invasion of the vulgar participle friends (I'm sooo funny ;;;; ;-))))) laugh, laugh) has long been over, including the friend who has a serious typing weakness who Googles at least as badly and only follows to his judgment Please specify:

Since you follow your "now enough! / That was the last time" statements reliably in the usual way, nothing will break out here.
