     Home | Language | Vulgar Latin

Vulgar Latin (in Renaissance Latin, vulgare Latinum or Latinum vulgare) is any of the nonstandard forms of Latin from which the Romance languages developed. Because of its nonstandard nature, it had no official orthography, and only Classical Latin was used in writing. It is sometimes called colloquial Latin, or Proto-Romance or Common Romance (particularly in the late stage).

Here are shown a few samples of the interviews with characters from ancient Rome. A Latin Qvarter film with Robert Bathurst, Marco Bortolami, Olivia Cockburn, Anthony Easton, Edward Gillespie, Tom Morris, Giada Pantano and Steve Wright. Filmed and produced by George Sharpley. Nero is the emperor, the first Christians are in Rome, and a few months earlier the northern province of Britannia has been rocked by a bloody uprising. Boudicca, queen of the rebellious Iceni, now lies dead, her army too. In Rome, people are nervously awaiting the outcome of a recent murder: Lucius Pedanius Secundus, the city prefect and former consul, has been killed by his own slave. The law demands the execution of all 400 slaves in his household, man, woman and child. Their fate is the talk of Rome ... talk that is here preserved in filmed interviews with a senator, slave, gladiator, merchant, poet and other Romans of the time. The Latin Qvarter has recreated a realistic idea of people speaking the Latin language in ancient Rome.
