anyone want to help? I put ds1 on a on-line latin dictionary and it's breaking up the expressions into 2 words, most of which he can figure out. But time crunch now. Anyone know off the top of their heads what these are so at least I know whether or not he gets them right?

caveat emptor (is that buyer beware?)
compos mentis
ipso facto
tempus fugit

Ipso facto= by the act

I think.Off the top of my head,
