The Telegraph kicked off the 2006-07 academic year with the declaration “Nota bene: Latin is back”. Arguably, it never really went away. Despite lower levels of compulsory Latin in schools today, the language remains prolific in many areas of our daily life. Medical, legal and literary texts are littered with Latin phrases that embody a meaning English simply can’t articulate. The essence of Latin is irreplaceable and the benefits of learning this wonderful language are unequivocal. The Penguin Latin Dictionary is a brand new, comprehensive dictionary that includes Latin to English, English to Latin, notes on grammar and pronunciation plus the historical context of this classical language. The Latin-English section has been extensively researched and designed to meet the specific needs of students and professionals today. Vivat crescat floreat!
