Notes on vocabulary: we are leaving out some words of modern usage where we haven’t yet found a consistently accepted Latin word for, such as toothbrush, washer, dryer, microwave, etc. We will add them in if we are able to research and verify what modern Latinists generally agree on. Use the talk page to make suggestions. In the meantime, the above words can be found in multiple sources, even if they are not strictly classical in origin.
