You probably already know that Latin was the language of the ancient Romans. However, were you aware that the name of the language can be traced back to present-day Lazio, the region where Rome is located? At the time of the Roman Empire it was called Latium.
While Latin hasn’t been routinely spoken or composed for many years, save for an intermittent academic text, its inheritance is as yet felt all through the vocabulary of both Romance and Germanic dialects today. Whether you’re sending off a foul play assault or adding etcetera to the furthest limit of a rundown, it’s probably you’re peppering your discourse with Latin expressions without knowing it.
