    Latin. The words mean "meancing" (or "ominous") and "book" respectively. It's a parody of Mirabilis Liber


    Bizarrely, Google Translate doesn't seem to be able to correctly translate this back into English. In addition to latching on to a different meaning of the aord "liber" it even more vexingly cannot translate the word "minaces" properly despite it having me the word in the first place, and Wiktionary verifying the word's existence. Instead, it insists that "minaces" translates as "shamful"[sic] which Wiktionary and Dictionary.com tell me is not a word; the only definition I could find for "shamful" is an Urban Dictionary entry of questionable provenance which claims that it is a portmanteau of "sham" and "shameful"

    EDIT:
    Most of my recent entries are parodies of real book titles (often medieval ones since I'm working my way upward through wikipedia's books by decade categories and that's where I'm at now). The key to my previous post is below
