Latin has contributed nearly 58% of all words in English!
D id you know that while Greek is the language of Science, Latin is the language of everything! If English is the world’s largest language, sitting bossily at 1 million words, Latin accounts for 58% of these words (29% directly, and 29% through its daughter → French).
Does this mean you need to learn Latin as a language? No. Just Latin roots that have crept into the English language.
