拉丁文在西方世界的地位?

這幾天在知識+找常春藤盟校的校訓:Cornell: I would found an institution where any person can find instruction in any study.Princeton: Dei sub numine viget(Under God's power she flourishes)Brown: In deo speramus (In God we hope)Dartmouth: Vox Clamantis in Deserto(A voice crying out in the wilderness)Columbia: In lumine tuo videbimus lumen(In thy light we shall see light)Pennsylvania: Leges sine Moribus vanae (Laws without morals are useless)就有7家的校訓是拉丁文, 使用拉丁文在外國人眼中是比較高級嗎?是有類似我們用毛筆寫字的那種感覺嗎?可是拉丁文不是沒人在說了嗎?

    大部分的Ivy都在18世紀創校(也有更早的)當時拉丁文還是個相當重要的語言那時巴黎大學的教授還是堅持使用拉丁文教學可見其影響力當時的擬定校訓如今都被保存下來不是現在才定的,用來裝酷之類的像陸戰隊的隊訓是Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful)拉丁文在西方文學的影響力無遠弗屆眾多語系都留有拉丁文的痕跡
