Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Latinism (also called Latinity) is an idiom, structure, or word derived from or suggestive of the Latin language. For Latinistic words in English, see Latin influence in English.

It can also be used to mean a word borrowed into another language from Latin, especially one deemed overly pretentious. See Inkhorn term for this meaning.
