  英文里的一些拉丁词语缩写:

  虽然现在没有一个城市在用古拉丁语,但是在英语(和其他很多语言)的单词中有很多都是从古拉丁语中演变来的,在日常生活中使用的很频繁。虽然不需要系统的学习古拉丁语,但是记住一些常用到的词汇和短语无疑对你的英语学习会帮上大忙。下面小编就列出一些常用的拉丁词语缩写,相信记住了这些词汇,你的个人词库上升的将不只是一个档次!

  Must learn terms

  1.Per se(就其本身而言):the direct translation of this term is “by itself, and it means just that when used in English as well. You could use it to say that you don’t find chemistry boring per se(by itself),but this professor’s voice puts you to sleep.

  例如:就化学课本身而言我并不讨厌它, 但是化学教授上课的声音总是让我打瞌睡。

  2.Vice versa(反之亦然)from the Latin meaning “to change”, this term means to reverse the order of something. This quote from Samuel Bulter provides an example, “in the midest of vice we are in virtue, and vice versa”

  3.Alma mater(母校尤指大学): if you don’t know this term already, you will become quite familiat with it once you graduate from college. The literal translation is “dear/bountiful mother” but you will find it used in everyday language to denote the college or university from which one has graduated.

  4.Magum opus(大师之作/绝美的艺术作品): whether its in writing, painting, sculpture or music, this latin term denote the greatest work done by an artist—a true masterpiece.

  5.Bona fide (在法律术语中只良好的意图/一般表示真诚地,善意的)while its literal translation means “good faith”, this term has a few different shades of meaning in modern language. In legal terms, it is used to represent something that is presented without deception or fraud, or literally in good faith. Honest, simcere and lawful. It is more commonly used to mean something that is the real deal or truly authentic.

  6.Quasi(类似的): in latin, this term means as if or as though and in English it is used as both an adj.in its own right and as a part of a compound word. It simply designates something that resembles something else but does not quite have all the same features.

  7.Alter ego(密友,或者个性的另一面):Cicero coined this term, most likely taken from the Greek, to mean “a second self or another I”, and its modern meaning hasn’t changed much today. Many people have an alter ego, or another I, perhaps hidden aspect of themselves. One example from popular culture is Byonce’s Sasha Fierce.
