Robin Langley Sommer
Proving the eternal usefulness of the world's liveliest "dead" language, this little book is filled Latin phrases everyone knows (alter ego, bona fide, status quo); expressions from Roman literature (a word to the wise, seize the day); unusual word derivations (sullen, from solus: alone); scholarly abbreviations; Latin words adopted directly into English (censor, forum, cohort); more. An educational, informative, entertaining, and eye-opening look at a fascinating language.
