Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scientia est potentia (knowledge is power) More Latin for the Illiterati demystifies the terminology of modern courtrooms and hospitals, untangles some of the most complex and unforgiving examples of Latin abbreviation, and allows readers to explore the classical roots of law, medicine and the ministry.

This new collection contains nearly 5000 entries devoted to law, medicine and religion, and includes phrases like: jus sibi dicere-- to take the law into one's own hands

hircosus-- smelling like a goat

opprobrium medicum the reproach of physicians]--an incurable disease

ita et viri debent diligere uxores ut corpora sua--so men ought to love their wives as their own bodies Ephesians 5:28]

ludere cum sacris--to trifle with sacred things

amicus curiae--a friend of the court

Practicing or aspiring doctors, lawyers or ministers, language-lovers, students of literature--and anybody who loved Latin for the Illiterati, will want More... This collection also makes an ideal gift.

Praise for the first Illiterati collection:

If you're a student trying to improve your vocabulary, this is a great book... For those who have forgotten their three years of parochial-school Latin, this is really great book. --Publisher's Weekly

A ready-reference dream come true...--American Libraries

Book News Annotation:

A principio (from the beginning) this codex (book) is ad captum vulgi (easily understood). Stone's (interdisciplinary studies, UC Berkeley) companion piece to Latin for the Illiterati is a guide for the average person interested in understanding the origin of many terms we commonly use each day with a focus on three areas of most common usage: legal, medical, and religious. Organized into three sections, Latin entries are arranged alphabetically; and the book includes an English to Latin index and an index of Latin abbreviations.
