Product Description

Latin comes alive in this medley of more than three hundred Latin words, phrases, proverbs, and precepts. Impress your friends with a catchy Latin toast, enrich your understanding of English by learning Latin roots, or simply be amused by the humor and veracity of centuries-old sayings, such as noli irritare leones (do not provoke the lions) or cito maturum, cito putridum (soon ripe, soon rotten).

Based on the popular reference Latin for the Illiterati by Jon R. Stone (Routledge, 1996), this deck covers forty-eight topics that range from the common to the unusual. These cards are a must for language junkies and will inform and inspire everyone to say it with panache. Now you don't have to be a scholar to sound like one.
