    Latin: Why Bother

    Why bother? Latin (Latium-an ancient place in Italy) is one of the most insidious (insidious-deceitful) of tongues in (in-in) modern (mod-just lately + ernus-of time) English (angli-angle + isc-ish). Latin permeates (permeates-pass through) several areas such as church, medicine (medicina-the art of healing), and law. Latin continues (continuare-to make continuous) to live through making new words such as altimeter (alti-high plus metior-to measure). Historically, Latin was the language (lingua-tongue + age-age) of the learned which continues in the Law, although Anglicised to a degree (degrades-grade) as having arrived (arripare-to come to land < ad ripam-to the river bank) in America via (via-street or way) British Law.

    Collins Latin Concise Dictionary is an excellent, affordable, introduction to Latin. The dictionary is only a part of this compendium. There are Latin phrases currently used in English; lists of words and phrases, such as place names (April in Parisii) regarding Roman life and culture. (The book probably does have all the information you need to translate the classics; putting the words and grammar together is a bit tedious). In sum (summa-chief point), if you have a passing interest in Latin, this is a superb start.
