"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. This new dictionary offers a fresh look at a language which has retained its influence and colour. It includes a thematic index - a comprehensive index will take you to all the words and phrases relating to a particular subject, covering everything from ambition, beauty, and courage to war and wisdom. It features more than just words and phrases - 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. It contains mottoes of countries and famous people and institutions, such as the American dollar, Henry VIII, Oxford University and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer are just a few of the inspiring and sometimes ironic mottoes. It also includes proverbs - familiar and amusing proverbs are included and easily found in a separate index, along with literary examples - an A-Z listing of all Latin authors cited includes outlines of their lives and works.

Reviews

What should go into such a work nowadays is hard to assess and M. seems to have got it about right. I have been keeping an eye open over the last few months for Latin tags, and those in what may be reckoned current use he has identified. * Roland Mayer, The Classical Review Vol.XLIX No.2 *
