LATINATE. Relating to, derived from, or in the style of LATIN. The term is used both for words in which the Latin form has been retained (such as formula, latex, mausoleum, stimulus) and for those in which adaptations have been made (such as elucidate, legal, pungency, vociferous). See AUREATE DICTION, INKHORN TERM.
