Latin on Jeopardy

Just now on Jeopardy one of the categories in Double Jeopardy was Latin. The questions required knowledge of some words, but also of an irregular verb form and some grammatical terminology. Contestant Anne got all five right! Maybe people aren't quite as ignorant about language as we thought. Or maybe it was just a fluke.
