As any translation, it would greatly depend on your overall context.

Eg, it would be quite different the way you use each word within each sentence (ie, as adjective, adverb, noun or verb).

(Not to talk about ALL the declination alternatives).

 

I think it would be far better if you may post all the pertinent text, as far as it is not too extense.

Or just the context; I could use one set in responding to someone (say, my students in the classroom) and another set within a given phrase.

I am wanting a word that indicates a rule of law I suppose. Or more importantly that that rule is based on some universal idea of good as opposed to evil.

 

I am making this artwork, across which will be some text. ideally one four letter word. The work itself speaks of Utopian ideals and their problems, and I want the word to highlight that any utopian vision has it's basis in someones assumption that there is in fact a "right" or a universal idea of "good" for all. I was thinking I would use "Boni" as in good men, but then I just don't like the look of the word that much. I want to use latin to tie the idea to multiple historical epochs, sort of a myth of progress thing.

 

I hope this gives more of a context or what I want the word to be about.

 

Thanks Doc
