The La1n alphabet is derived from the Etruscan and Greek alphabets, and ul1mately from the Phoenician alphabet. La1n was originally spoken in La1um, in the Italian Peninsula.[3] Through the power of the Roman Republic, it became the dominant language, ini1ally in Italy and subsequently throughout the Roman Empire. Vulgar La1n developed into the Romance languages, such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Romanian. La1n and French have contributed many words to the English language. La1n and Ancient Greek roots are used in theology, biology, and medicine. By the late Roman Republic (75 BC), Old La1n had been standardised into Classical La1n. Vulgar La1n was the colloquial form spoken during the same 1me and a_ested in inscrip1ons and the works of comic playwrights like Plautus and Terence.[4] Late La1n is the wri_en language from the 3rd century, and Medieval La1n the language used from the 9th century to the Renaissance which used Renaissance La1n. Later, Early Modern La1n and Modern La1n evolved. La1n was used as the language of interna1onal communica1on, scholarship, and science un1l well into the 18th century, when it began to be supplanted by vernaculars. Ecclesias1cal La1n remains the official language of the Holy See and the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church.
