Latin Words In English

There are quite a few Latin words and phrases that appear in English, usually in written English but sometimes in spoken English too. Some of them are used more in certain areas such as law, medicine, business etc. Generally, you do not need to learn and use many Latin phrases, but it could help you to recognize them when you see them. Here are some of the most common. (Note that many Latin phrases are used in other - mainly European - languages. So if you speak one of those languages you may be familiar with many if not all of the Latin phrases on this page.)
