Ad Nauseam by Lorna Robinson

Book Description

Join Lorna Robinson as she introduces you to the fascinating (and humorous) world of the Latin language. Explore ancient Rome through familiar and not-so-familiar words and concepts - from the more classic Latin of the upper classes to the insults and the everyday 'vulgar Latin' straight from the seedy underbelly of Roman life. Be amazed at just how many Latin words and phrases are still in use around the world today - excluding the favourite Roman insult: sterculinum publicum! (you public toilet!) which might yet make a comeback. Beautifully illustrated with original Roman mosaics, Ad Nauseam brings to life the history and humour behind this world-shaping empire.

Buy Ad Nauseam book by Lorna Robinson from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
