About the Latin Language

Although Latin is considered a dead language because it no longer evolves, it is still used in many places today. It is, among other things, the official language of the Vatican. Originally, it was the language of the region in Italy called Latium, from which it gets its name. Many Latin words have also been incorporated into modern languages. There is a significant number of Latin-derived words in English. The Latin language was the language of ancient Rome. It still survives in descendant languages, especially in areas that were part of ancient Rome, such as Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, and Romania.

Today, Roman numerals are still alive and often used.

Latin Alphabet

According to some sources, the Latin alphabet is based on Etruscan writing, which is very similar to Székely-Magyar runic script.

The Latin alphabet consists of 21 letters. These are: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, V, X. The difference between "Z" and "S" was insignificant, so they omitted "Z" from the alphabet even in ancient times.

On the DictZone website, besides Latin, you can find other languages (including English-French, English-German, English-Spanish, English-Italian, English-Russian).
