Animalia Poster

Poster with Latin names of common (and some uncommon) animals.

Vocabulary sourced from Conversational Latin for Oral Proficiency (John Traupman), David Morgan's Lexicon Latinum, and other sources including Vicipaedia.

Via Magisterc Lcjsms
Mair's insight:

This is very interesting for me, not so much because of the animal words, but because 1) it gives some very interesting resources as the source of the vocabulary and 2) it is among rare attempts I have seen to associate a latin word directly with a noun without translating it ... at least I think it doesn't translate (will have to zoom in to check!)

This is the free-to-access cut down version of the full TLG which collects together Ancient Greek texts and facilitates word and lemma searches.  Words can be hyperlinked as in Perseus and some texts have translations too, but it is the search facilities which set it apart. Extremely valuable for research
