Hoare: English Words Derived from Latin Roots
Exotics: or, English Words Derived from Latin Roots by Edward Newenham Hoare (1863)
This book consists of ten lectures on the Latin content of the English vocabulary, and constitutes a follow-up to the author's earlier lectures on the Anglo-Saxon roots of English. Fortunately, there is an index to the Latin words discussed in the back of the book, so even if you are not interested in reading through all the lectures, you can look up any word of interest using the index. With just a few exceptions, the index is already hyperlinked, so you just have to click on the item you are interested in, and you will be taken directly to that page in the book.
