The most well-recognized Latin (some also call them "Romance" languages, not because they are necessarily romantic, but because they are of Roman origin) are French, Spanish, Italian, Catalan, Portuguese and Romanian. However, there are also numerous less-known languages that have a Latin origin, among them: Asturian: Once considered a Spanish dialect, it is now regarded as an independent language of the west Spanish region of Asturia. Galician: A close relative of Portuguese, this language is mainly spoken in Galicia, a region of western Spain. Piedmontese: A language spoken in the northwestern Italian region of Piedmont, it is linguistically similar to Italian. In Italy this language is considered a dialect, although others consider it an independent language. Occitan: A close relative of Catalan, it is spoken in a number of regions in Spain, France, Italy and Monaco. The above list is by no means comprehensive; there are likely numerous other dialects that expand the variety. Also, keep in mind that languages that are not of Latin origin, such as English, have a significant Latin component. Looked at this way, there are dozens of languages that were influenced by Latin, especially the so-called Indo-European languages that make up the majority of languages in Europe. However ... The fact that a language has 'a significant Latin component' in its vocabulary doesn't mean that it 'stems' from Latin. There's much more to a language than its vocabulary. Moreover, in many cases much of the Latin vocabulary was imported fairly recently. == ==
All the romance languages come from Latin

Italian

French

English

Spanish

are just to name a few of these romance languages.

And Romanian ( Eastern Romance language) .
All Romance languages are derived from Latin, although not directly, but rather from Latin dialects (vulgar Latin): Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Catalan, Romanian... Italian is probably the nearest to Latin, sometimes so near that Italian natives can guess the meaning of a Latin motto, without ever having studied Latin. E.g. tempus fugit = il tempo fugge = time flees. Romanian is very similar to Latin too: timpul zboara

There is a good amount of Latin-akin words in English as well, but many of them came into English later on from French. The longer and formal English words are likely to have a Latin origin, usually through French, but there are some English words borrowed directly from Latin, because of the long Roman domination in the UK, which lasted about four centuries.

Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian are romance languages. This is a term which indicates that they are derived from Vulgar Latin; that is, from the mixture of Latin and local languages, which developed in parallel with classical Latin.

The Romance languages (one group of many human languages) are derived from Latin. Many Latin words are borrowed directly from Latin into other languages, and many abbreviations are derived from their Latin roots.

All the Romance languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian) are languages derived from vulgar Latin. Vulgar Latin was a mixture of Latin and local languages which developed in parallel with classical Latin. These evolutions were due to the fact that Latin became an extinct language and that languages evolve.

Romance languages. Like 'Roman'ce languages. Cause Latin comes from the Romans

The Latin stem may be defined as the base in Latin from which a given word in Latin or in any other language is derived. For example, 'audi-' is the Latin stem to the Latin noun 'audientia', which means 'attention, hearing or listening'; the Latin verb 'audire', which means 'to hear or listen'; the Latin noun 'auditorium', which means a 'hall for listening'; and the Latin noun 'auditus', which means 'the sense of hearing'. It also is the stem to the English language words 'auditor' and 'auditorium'.

The Latin stem dict- is probably derived from the fourth principle part of the verb dico. Dictum is having been said. So the latin stem dict is probably to say.

Latin America is called Latin because the languages most often spoken there, Spanish and Portuguese, are Romance languages derived from Latin.

User Avatar

It means it's the part of America where they speak Latin languages. Latin languages spawned from or are closely relate-able to Latin. For example Spanish and Portuguese.

Languages that developed from Latin are known as "Romance" languages. The term comes from the Latin phrase Romanice loqui, which means "to speak in Roman fashion".Languages that descended from Latin are collectively called the Romance languages, though you may also hear them referred to as the Romanic languages, Latin languages, or Neo-Latin languages.The six most widely spoken standardized Romance languages are Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Romanian, and Catalan. Some other Romance languages are Corsican, Leonese, Occitan, Aromanian, Sardinian, Sicilian, Venetian, Neapolitan, Asturian,Galician, and Friulian.

The Romans imposed Latin on their entire empire at first. Later, Latin began to mesh with native accents and languages, producing Vulgar Latin, which then proceeded to evolve into the individual Romance languages.
