alexz commented on the word Promptorium Parvulorum
This is a 1440 English - Latin dictionary. Written by Geoffrey the Grammarian.
It has been republished many times.
Also available on Google books.
In a debate with a grammar nazi who says 'you ought not talk like that', the Promptorium Parvulorum is the trump card to play when using the 'Living Language" play.
For a Harry Potterish win, end the argument with "promptorium parvolorum grammaticus tyrannus begone!"
