Google translate is strange... I intended to say "Yes, and I like snakes too." in Latin. It converted that sentence to Latin, but when I try to translate what it gave me back to English it says "In this way I would also like these snakes away."
Italian and Latin are two different languages.
You have to study Latin if you want to understand it.
I studied Latin and Ancient Greek when I was attending the High School - it is a special school called "Liceo Classico", specialized in humanistic matters.
Our Italian teacher said that if we wanted to understand the etymology of Italian words we would have to study Latin and Ancient Greek. So I guess those studies have given you a lot of insight in your own mother tongue.
