Helpful Score: 2
An informative and fun book! The author includes hundreds of Latin mottoes, sayings, bon mots, and proverbs. They are ordered alphabetically, each followed by its pronunciation (in an informal but generally useful transcription), and general sense. Most of the entries have an explanatory sentence or two, giving the background, source, and literal translation. A fun and educational book; helpful to the student of Latin, and entertaining and educational to the general reader.
