Summary of The Penguin Latin Dictionary Summary of The Penguin Latin Dictionary Reviews for The Penguin Latin Dictionary An Excerpt from The Penguin Latin Dictionary
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.
