Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lighter side of an already dead language  Oct 31, 2008
As most of the reviewers told. These phrases are for fun and mostly used to sending our non-Latin speaking friends to puzzle them.

But sometimes it is also fun to find out how did he translate a technological term or phrase to Latin. Like "Batteries not included" vs. "Lagunculae leydianae non accedunt". Here "Leyden Jar" being an old form of a capacitor which Benjamin Franklin used to store some electricity in the storm from a thunder.

It is also happened to me in several occassions that he is rather finding funny English explanations that he finds in classical Latin literature like "Interdum feror cupidine partium magnarum Europae vincendarum" (Sometimes I get an urge to conquer large parts of Europe) etc.

Anyway it is always fun to read the phrases be it for finding out how did he translate a phrase or what he matched to a 500 year old Latin phrase in daily life US English including slang.
Amusing and Fun  Aug 10, 2007
I am currently a Latin student, and will be using this book to amuse and annoy my teacher.
Latin is one of my favorite subjects, and this is certainly a great addition to your textbooks.

Vale, lacerte!
WEll for the right person, maybe  Jan 20, 2007
Unless you are a Latin scholar or a linquist, this is not the book for you, don't waste your time or money. I got a copy from the library and did not buy it.
Latin for All Occasions  Jul 12, 2006
This book is informative, and fun. I enjoyed reading the translations. It is fun to share with friends. I like to end letters with some of the phrases, just to tease my non-Latin speaking friends.
A fun book...  Dec 9, 2004
This book is a fun book to keep on hand.

Most of the phrases are Sometimes I get this urge to conquer large parts of europe (interdum feror cupidine partium magnarum Europae vincendarum)but it is still a fun book.

I especially enjoy throwing in some latin phrases in email correspondence with friends to keep them guessing.
