Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Latin for the Illiterati is everyperson's reference to common Latin words and phrases. With over 6,000 entries--including 300 abbreviations--this volume will accompany every reader, student and scholar through their lifelong reading journey.

This solidly researched handbook was ten years in the making, evolving from a handwritten help list of frequently occurring phrases to this comprehensive reference tool. The volume contains common words, phrases and abbreviations selected from the worlds of art, music, law, philosophy, theology, medicine and the theatre as well as clever sayings and sage advice from ancient writers. In addition, there is a section on geographical place names, colors, calendar months and days and Roman numerals as well as an English index and a brief guide on Latin pronunciation.

Synopsis:

This is a reference guide to nearly 6000 Latin words, phrases and standard abbreviations taken from art, law, philosophy, religion, theater, medicine and theology. The ubiquity of Latin phrases should make this a useful reference tool.
