Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Stone follows up his Latin for the Illiterati (LJ 12/96) with this new dictionary, structured around the subtitle's three areas: medicine, law, and religion. Translations are brief and literal. The dictionary concludes with some of the same information given in Latin for the Illiterati as well as newer miscellaneous information, including Latin selections (with English translations) from the Roman Catholic liturgy. The dictionary ends with an English-Latin index. The major drawback is the arrangement by topicAthe three different topic areas must be checked if the user doesn't know whether the word or phrase is medical, legal, or religious (there is no Latin index). On the positive side, this dictionary contains many terms not found in other recent Latin-English dictionaries, such as James Morwood's A Dictionary of Latin Words and Phrases (Oxford Univ., 1998). Adeleye's World Dictionary of Foreign Expressions provides translations from over 20 languages, making it an excellent resource for general users. Each definition indicates part of speech, language of origin, plural forms, and literal translation (including the literal translation of each word in a phrase). Also included are lengthier, connotative definitions, examples of use in sentences, and, when appropriate, cross references to other terms. Adeleye's dictionary is recommended for all public and academic libraries; Stone's is for libraries needing a more specialized resource.ACynthia A. Johnson, Barnard Coll. Lib., New York

Review

"Stone had done a masterful job of rendering Latin phrases into palatable English. His Latin reference work is beautifully laid out and easy to accesss. The choice of entries introduces professional terms in style: neatly, succintly, and gracefully."
-ARBA 2000
"It provides more specialized vocabularies that other handbooks of Latin phrases...and is the only one to provide a separate English to Latin index and a list of abbreviations...it will be helpful to public and undergraduate libraries."
-"Choice, March 2000
"This dictionary contains many terms not found in other recent Latin-English dictionaries."

Format: Paperback
From the title, I thought that More Latin for the Illiterati would be a tongue in cheek joke book. It isn't. Instead, it is a practical overview to Latin phrases used in English today.

The book has a section on medical Latin, a section on legal Latin, and a section on religious Latin. It also has a short appendixes section with a guide to Roman numerals, the colors, days of the week, months of the year, etc in Latin. There is also a short Enlish to Latin index, so you can find the Latin phrase if you remember the translation, and then can go to that section for more explanation on the phrase's history.

This really is Latin for the Illiterati. You don't have to study Latin, but then can use this book to bone up on Latin phrases that are used in our world today.

Great book for anyone that wishes they had paid more attention in Latin class! So much of our medical and legal vocabulary is built on Latin and this is a superb resource and quick reference.

Useful phrases to have to hand lest you might be accosted on your way to the Forum. If you get 2 or 3 phrases then it is worth it. Useful reference book.
