  • Mood:

to be proud

I was thinking today that I wanted to say in Latin "I'm proud of you" but the only words I could think of or find in the dictionary were forms of superbus, which means more like proud as in haughty. There was a note that it was poetic and/or post-Augustan usage to use superbus to mean having pride in some accomplishment.

Is this just not a concept the Romans wrote about--to be proud of someone for their accomplishments--or am I missing something?

Multas gratias!
