Product description

Review

What did the Romans ever do for us? Well, besides the sanitation, the roads, etc, they left us Latin, and in this wonderfully informative survey, Peter Jones guides us through the ways in which their language has percolated through our own. Jones wears his learning lightly and there's an arresting insight or a fascinating historical anecdote on every page. * Mail on Sunday * Wonderfully enteratining * Spectator * --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

A surprising, witty and entertaining journey through the Latin roots of the English language, by the bestselling author of Veni Vidi Vici and Eureka!
