As entertaining as it is addictive and informative, VENI, VIDI, VICI has more than 1,000 Latin words and phrases to help you intelligently insult, compliment, or comment on anything at all. This book contains more than 1,000 Latin words and phrases, with a direct translation, actual meaning or English equivalent, and pronounciation for each one. With a new introduction and updated explanations, this timeless advice and wisdom is just as relevant today as it was in ancient Rome:
"Audacter calumniare semper aliquid haeret" - Slander boldly, something always sticks
"Corpus valet sed aegrotat crumena" - What good is health if you can't afford to enjoy it?
"Militiae species amor est" - Love is a kind of military service
This updated edition includes revised explanations for each phrase, aimed at how modern readers would be able to use the Latin in conversation, along with updated pronunciation throughout the book, based on the most recent conventions for Latin pronunciation.
