Latin's Modern Role: A New Modus Vivendi

Both schools of linguistic thought can arrive at a modus vivendi.

Letter to the Editor, Wall Street Journal, December 9, 2013

One need not be a card-carrying Ciceronian to applaud the indefatigability of Stéphane Feye and Gaius Licoppe in resurrecting Latin ("Caveat Emptor," page one, Nov. 30), the lingua franca of Western civilization, as a living, breathing language of hope and unity.

But the purists should stop squabbling with modernists seeking to revivify the eternal tongue of Roma Aeterna. Surely both schools of linguistic thought can arrive at a modus vivendi.
