!latin has been dead for over a year - for no reason

I have been complaining about this in all the locations I can think of, and I have been told that the problem is trivial to repair (just removing a space or so), but nothing happens!
The workaround is to use !greek and then switch languages, but this is unworthy for DDG!

Please do repair this!

Edit: it should translate in http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morp...{{{s}}}&la=la
(that is http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/ followed by hopper/morph?l={{{s}}}&la=la).

!duckco returns a "Page Not Found" error. It appears to go to "https://duck.co/search/something" instead of "https://duck.co/forum/search?q=something"

Still dead. Is this DDG's way to stress that Latin is a dead language?

Yes - after I correct my mistake. Correct Latin would be:
Vere scio, sed timeo ne anates id nescire.

Truly I-know, but I-fear () ducks this not-to-know.

"I know that, but I am afraid the ducks don't know it." - "The ducks" being my best approximation to "Duckduckgo". I could have used "anates ientes" - going ducks.

"Timere" takes an apotropaic "ne", indicating "may it not be the case". The bit after the "ne" is an ACI, an accusativus cum infinitivo - "I fear this (acc) to be (inf) the case", meaning "I fear that this is the case".

Does that help?
