One can always have another son but a father is irreplaceable. I can’t remember who said that.
tag: is that pig latin?
No, it seems correct. Though my Latin is rather limited….
Here : Darth Vader:
No: I am your father
Here: Luke Skywalker:
On the contrary: that is not true:
Though my latin-hungarian dictionary only contains immo, not imo. Also, while Vader [wader?] can be traced to the stem vado (III.) (to go or hasten), I am not good enough at Latin to tell whether the verb-to-noun derivative suffix is properly applied [I would probably use “vadtor”]. Does Darth mean anything in English? It sounds like it was derived from dark – considering the character – but it is certainly not regularly done. Nevertheless dark is not from Latin, it probably should have been obscurus or ater.
And also hope the tag was not rhetorical.
Vader would more eloquently say: “Immo, ego pater!”
