What is the Latin meaning of 'antimony'?
The element antimony has an atomic number of 51, and a chemical symbol of 'Sb', to honor its known origins in the ancient, classical Latin and earlier, ancient, classical Greek languages. For its equivalents are the Latin 'Stibium', and the Greek 'Stimmi' and 'Stibi'. Most likely, an even earlier form started out as a loan word from Arabic or Egyptian. For the word existed in the even more ancient Egyptian language as 'msdmt'. Either way, the Latin 'Stibium' carried the meaning of mark. For it was used for dyeing the eyebrows, and as an eye-salve, by the ancient Romans.

the answer is infact, yes it is toxic!. Antimony is a non-essential element in humans, animals and plants. Its toxicity highly depends upon chemical form and oxidation state with +III compounds exerting greater toxicity than +V compounds. Antimony compounds show toxic properties similar to those of… arsenic. This depends on how much antimony a person has been exposed to, for how long, and current state of health. Exposure to high levels of antimony can result in a variety of adverse health effects. Breathing high levels for a long time can irritate eyes and lungs and can cause heart and lung problems, stomach pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, and stomach ulcers. Ingesting large doses of antimony can cause vomiting. Antimony can irritate the skin on prolonged contact. (MORE)

I'm not sure whether this question is asking "What does 'America' mean in Latin?" or "What does 'Latin America' mean?" What does 'America' mean in Latin? "America" doesn't really mean anything in Latin; the name was coined based on the name of the Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci, who visited …the South American coast on several voyages between 1499 and 1502. Vespucci Latinized his name (a common practice at the time) as Americus Vespucius , and it was this form that served as an inspiration to the cartographer Martin WaldseemÃ¼ller, who first used the term "America" in 1507. For what it's worth, "Amerigo" is an Italian form of the Germanic name "Amalric," from roots meaning "work" and "kingdom." What does 'Latin America' mean? "Latin America" refers to those parts of North, Central and South America where Spanish and Portuguese - languages derived from Latin - are spoken. Sometimes the term is applied more broadly to include all the territory south of the southern border of the United States, even countries where the primary language is English or French. (MORE)

I doubt there is a direct translation for jubilant (see paragraph below for why), but you could say " laetissimus" (pronounced light-iss-im-uss) , the superlative of " Laetus ", which means happy. Being the superlative, " laetissimus" means very happy. English is a somewhat unusual language in… that it has many words for the same concept i.e. to convey "big", one could say big, large, massive, enormous, huge, gargantuan, colossal et cetera. (As an aside, "Et cetera" is Latin for "and the others/ the rest.") Latin, on the other hand, does not; there is probably no direct translation for jubilant, which is one of the many words in English for happy. Instead, there are a handful of Latin words meaning happy, to be modified to suit the degree of happiness. TLDR: " Laetissimus", pronounced light-iss-(as in hiss, not is)-im-uss(as in bus, not us) (MORE)
