I read reviews of the book, and although I didn't do Latin at school, I knew it would be fun to develop the scant Latin I knew and would no doubt increase my vocabulary in English and other European languages.

I was looking for a translation for amo,amas,amat because its part of a verbal exchange in the film “Naked” by Mike Liegh. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). In his trip through the world's most influential language, Harry Mount uncorks its magic, drawing on Latin lovers from Kingsley Amis to John Cleese, from Evelyn Waugh to Donna Tart.While Harry Mount's engaging little Latin primer isn't likely to be much help to those for whom hic, haec, hoc is the result of a night in the pub, it will succeed in reminding the 'Latin lovers' of its subtitle just how elegant and versatile the language is.

Remember that there are also 5 latin conjugations, if you include mixed (I think), 5 or 6 declensions of nouns (I think), and 6 tenses, or at least those are the ones I know. There’s also the passives in all these tenses, and numerous other forms of verbs such as subjunctives, gerunds and god-knows-what. I think all the following is the correct information, but we’re only on our 5th week of Latin, so please forgive/correct if I’ve erred.My Latin basics really were basic and not long lasting, as well as having been a very long time ago, so, I really need to start the basics all over again. Have you ever found yourself irritated when a sine qua non or a mea culpa is thrown into the conversation by a particularly annoying person? I think it is sad that Latin persists in being a subject which is only taught at a small number of schools, and year by year that small number gets even smaller.

It won't be any help at all if you don't knw any Latin - the explanations are nowehere near clear enough - but if you have done some Latin its a fun way to remind yourself of it.
