OK, here is a challenge for you entomologists out there:

Compose a modern English sentence (let's say no fewer than 10 words) using only words of Italic Language Family origin. How about Germanic?

If you can't do it without help, try http://www.ethnologue.com/family_index.asp and the OED.

The graduate students in the entomology lab said such a puzzle bugs the heck out of them.
