Overview

A clear and approachable dictionary designed to serve the needs of today?s Latin users

Though it is a language that predates the dawn of the Roman Empire, Latin continues to influence many areas of modern life. Medical, legal, and literary texts are littered with Latin phrases that convey a meaning English simply can?t articulate. This latest addition to Penguin?s successful dictionary series is one of the most comprehensive concise Latin dictionaries ever published and includes:
? Vocabulary drawn from three centuries of key classical authors
? Feature boxes on important points of grammar and language
? Appendices on Latin terms in common use, names and places from myth and history, and a chronology of Roman authors and emperors.

Students and professionals alike will find this an indispensable guide to the language, from amo, amas, amat to veni, vedi, vici.
