    Did I even spell that word right?

    The reason I ask is that you run into these silly things all the time.

    I've heard it pronounced something like, non-sek-witter.

    But it's obviously Latin. I have a feeling it might have sounded a bit different when, say, Julius Caesar said it.

    non sequitUr..A conclusion that doesnt logically follow on from the topic it is attached to.."talking s***"..This word will never relate to you or I...(is a good example)..ENO

    Thanks, Eno.

    I guess I didn't phrase the question right; I know the definition. I just need the pronunciation.

    But maybe it doesn't matter. non-sek-witter will do.

    How about that? I didn't know that wiki gave pronunciations in Cyrillic letters!

    Or am I hallucinating? :)

    BGW, the way you spelled it out phonetically is indeed the correct pronunciation.

    It means (in Latin) it does not follow.
