Contents Notes
"A Dictionary of Latin Words and Phrases is a handy reference for all kinds of writing, as well as an absorbing collection of phrases, mottoes, proverbs, and sayings. From the memorable annus horribilis to the historic sic semper tyrannis, this new dictionary offers a fresh look at a language which has retained its influence and color." "Along with clear translations and pronunciation guidance, sources from literature and history are annotated with fascinating descriptions and explanations that place the phrases in context. Familiar and amusing proverbs are included and easily found in a separate listing and an A-Z listing of all Latin authors cited includes outlines of their lives and works."--Jacket.
