anyone know of a good dictionary or lexicon of Latin derivatives?

Recommended Posts

my son is constantly needing to look up examples of Latin derivatives for his Latin class. the online sources we have found so far don't seem to be very exhaustive. I was hoping to find a good one in book form, but not having lots of luck yet.


do you have one you use and like?

It wouldn't be Lonepine with Karen would it? If it is, you already know what I'm going to tell you.


If not, well, no, I don't know of one (though I really wish I did b/c my girl is derivatives, too) but you can access the previous NLE exams and scavenge those for lots of derivatives on several levels.


Does that help . . . or is your son in my daughter's class? ;)

not in the same class if you're in the Midwest!:D



it just seems someone somewhere would have created a handy little book for these purposes. sigh. I looked at one on Amazon that looked like a nightmare to navigate. There were some much older ones but there was no way to "look inside." I need for it to be user-friendly enough so a 8yo could use it.
