Renaissance Truth and the Latin Language Turn

Ann Moss

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses changes made to the humanist Latin language. These changes also affected the students studying the language in their grammar class, and the dominant Latin idiom in many respects was the late medieval language that the humanist teachers were agitating to replace. The humanists' programme for language change was radical in its effect because they implemented it at a particularly sensitive stage of the learning experience. This was when their young pupils were being taught communication skills for the first time in a foreign language, which was Latin.

Keywords:   changes, humanist Latin language, Latin idiom, humanist teachers, communication skills, Latin
