Want to express your love, but don't know how? Kiss your problem goodbye, for a University of Maryland Classics professor has suggested Roman ways of expressing your affection for that special someone.

Ancient Romans knew all about love, and weren't afraid to talk about it. So, professor Judith Hallett has offered a research on ancient Roman 'love talk'.

The study focuses on the writing of Plautus Phoenicium, a 2nd century BCE (Before Christian Era) playwright.

In his works Phoenicium looks at the different ways in which two men of very different social classes assess the erotically-charged words of one specific woman.

"Plautus, in his characteristically funny way, illustrates that social class, that of the critic and that of the writer, plays a major role in how Roman women's writings, and in this case erotic Latin writings, were judged by men," said Hallett.

In a new essay published in Advances in the History of Rhetoric, the researcher has suggested the perfect ways to woo a lady's heart. Like singing or writing the classic song "As Time Goes By," by Herman Hupfeld, which was made famous in the movie Casablanca. (ANI)
