How would one write 'Defiler of Your Mother' in medieval Latin

...and while your at it, Arabic as well.

Thanks,

I imagine that Carlton et al will probably be able to give a better answer for the Latin (I would suggest futūtor matris tui or something of the sort), the Arabic would be muḍājiʿ ummika (in Standard Arabic; dialects will vary).

question for both you, Sicilian, and you, Leo....is that as in "I am the..." or the "You are the..." ? my guess is the former, but for a brutish insult, the latter might be used.

I think I've been watching too much Rome and thinking too much about information paradoxes.

I was thinking 'I am', but the latter works just as well.

Also, would Gesta Normanum Sudensis be an accurate translation for 'Deeds of the Southern Normans'?
