Latin text language shifts thread
Author Posts

Hi again,

I am producing an academic book and have a question about language shifts for Latin text.

In the case of the italic text et al. in citations, should each of these instances be marked as Latin text?

Also, do you similarly do so in the cases of, for example, per secontrade facto, and so on?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Beth,

Thank you for this question! It is recommended that common foreign language phrases that have entered the English lexicon do not need to be tagged.

Hope this helps!


Many thanks for your help!
