Overview


This brand new addition to the Minidictionary series is a revised edition of the Routledge Latin Dictionary. It has been updated and revised to meet the needs of both students of Latin, and those with an interest in the classical world. Offering 50,000 entries and over 120,000 translations, the dictionary now reflects recent developments in the study of Latin, such as pronunciation and grammar. The most up-to-date and comprehensive dictionary of its size, it includes complete grammatical information about each Latin word, and indicates differences in meaning, style, and context in cases of ambiguity. In addition, it provides details of conjugation for Latin verbs, comprehensive markings of vowel length as a guide to classical Latin pronunciation, and detailed appendices of historical personalities and mythological characters, and geographical names, with English explanations of who they were.
