Why
  • What is the most attractiveness in learning Latin? I think that it is affluent aphorism and proverbs backed by the long history since the Roman Empire.
  • It is really useful and interesting to explore the old sayings and to take lessons and witness from the past.
  • In English Dictionary contains not a few corresponding Latin proverbs. I refered in particular: "Sanseido's Dictionary of English Proverbs (1976), Kenkyusha's New English-Japanese Dictionary (1966), and Anglo-American Law Dictionary (Yuhikaku, 1971), and others."
  • ラテン語を学ぶ魅力は何だろうか? 思うに、それはローマ帝国以来長い歴史に裏付けられた多くの金言や諺が沢山あることである。
  • 古い言葉を探索し、過去から教訓は機知を学ぶことは有益であり楽しいことである。温故知新である。
  • 英語の辞書には少なから対応するずラテン語の諺が載っている。特に、三省堂英語諺辞典 (1976) 、研究社新大英和辞典(1966)、英米法辞典 (有斐閣,1971) などを参照した。

  • Latin language is the stream of Wester culture: religion, literature, language, philosophy, science and people's mindset ...
  • Proberbial phrases are the compressed messages which have been forged and inherited by people through long history.
  • ラテン語は西欧文化の源流である。宗教、文学、言語、哲学、科学、そして人々の発想までも
  • 諺的な表現は圧縮されたメッセージである。それは、人々によって長い間の歴史を通じて鍛えられ伝承されてきたのだ。
