Legere doesn't mean to speak in Latin but to gather, to choose or to read. It's a common mistake that my students (who take both Latin and Greek) often make. But you're right that it is from the same root as the Greek word.
I was talking about Greek, that's what I take, not latin
I had actually heard that it was also a word in latin, but thanks for telling me what it means

Thanks for noticing my word play !
Actually it is Latin (legere
"to speak" : lego, legis, legit, legimus, legitis, legunt
But it is close from Greek too, (λέγειν
"to speak" λέγω, λέγεις, λέγει, λέγετον, λέγετον, λέγομεν, λέγετε, λέγουσιν
The root word is the same lego
(you can read "lego").
---> I really like Ancient civilisations, and I can't wait for a "mythology" LEGO® theme
Yeah, in greek λέγω mreans I speak. I didn't really reconize the endings, but I had forgoten that it was also a Latin word
I really like Ancient civilizations as well.
