Latin: A Symbol's Empire

(Author) (Translator)
Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.

Description

This work explores the institutional contexts in which the language was adopted and transmitted as well as the privilege it came to confer on those that studied it. Waquet demonstrates how Latin became a symbol of status and ultimately shows that rather than disappearing this has given way to a nostalgic exoticism such that water companies and car-models now use Latin names.
