GODAMNIT! I HATE THE ****ing PUN BECAUSE CAESAR IS PRONOUNCED "KAISAR"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHEN WILL THIS ENCYCLOPEDIA BECOME ACCURATE? --Icon.gifSir Xiao Li CUN VFH NS (Talk)[citation needed] 10:07, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

It's actually pronounced /Ki:zə/. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 10:22, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
Not really though, because we speak English, not Latin. Spang talk 10:30, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
What effect does that have on the IPA pronounciation? ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 10:31, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
Well, Caesar should be pronouced sees-her using modern Anglo-Latin pronunciation which has been used for centuries - /Ki:zə/ would be the classical roman pronunciation, which we haven't used officially for a long time. So seeing as we're speaking English, the standard pronunciation of c followed by an ae sounds like "see". Probably. Spang talk 10:41, 2 June 2006 (UTC)
We should use [kæssɝ]. The german was [ka͡izɐ], and that is wrong. [kæssɝ] is an anglicised version of the late latin pronounciation, after the dipthong /a͡e/ was lostThomasp3864 (talk) 17:18, 14 May 2020 (UTC)

Fear the Ides of March! How can you not have "Et tu" in there someone? "Et tu, you freakin' bastard?" -- 23:57, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Are we aware that "et tu" is the wrong tradition, he's supposed to have actually said "ki su, teknon?" (Greek; "you too, my child?", a quote from Menander). Or is using the wrong tradition (thanks Shakespeare!) part of the joke?

Usage of J[edit]

In the original, his name was IVLIVS CÆSER, not JVLIVS CÆSER!!!!!! We should cut out all instances of the letter J. (also G was written Ꞔ, so maybe we should use that instead)
