Description
For a supposedly dead language, Latin is showing a lot of vigor these days; in this spirit, Oxford-trained classicist Lorna Robinson introduces readers to the wonderful, chimeric world of the Latin language. Her forum for this is the world of ancient Rome, where Latin flowered and expanded with the Roman Empire to become Europe's dominant language. Each chapter of Cave Canem ("beware of the dog") explores the richness of Latin words and concepts through a different aspect of Roman life, from the language of home and garden to that of family and gods, from the classical Latin of the upper classes and of business, law, and medicine to the everyday "vulgar Latin" of the street. A final chapter presents a miscellany of Latin phrases still very much in use around the world today, and the book is illustrated throughout with color photos of Roman mosaics.
