Description

This course, Continuing classical Latin, gives you the opportunity to hear a discussion of the development of the Latin language.

Introduction

This course features a discussion that shows how languages develop – a spoken language is constantly undergoing change while written language is more conservative. In its second part, it also looks at the evolution of Latin into the Romance languages: Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian and others. The discussions throughout this course are between Professor Geoffrey Horrocks and Dr. James Clackson, both of the Faculty of Classics, Cambridge University.
