Reviews

"Stone had done a masterful job of rendering Latin phrases into palatable English. His Latin reference work is beautifully laid out and easy to accesss. The choice of entries introduces professional terms in style: neatly, succintly, and gracefully." -- ARBA 2000

"It provides more specialized vocabularies that other handbooks of Latin phrases…and is the only one to provide a separate English to Latin index and a list of abbreviations…it will be helpful to public and undergraduate libraries." -- Choice, March 2000

"This dictionary contains many terms not found in other recent Latin-English dictionaries." -- Library Journal
