List of Latin phrases

Some of the phrases are themselves translations of Greek phrases, as Greek rhetoric and literature were highly regarded in ancient Rome when Latin rhetoric and literature were still maturing. The Latin letter i can be used as either a vowel or a consonant. When used as a consonant, it is often replaced by the letter j, which was originally simply an orthographic "long i" that was used in initial positions and when it occurred between two other vowels. This convention from Medieval Latin is most commonly preserved in Latin legal terminology—hence phrases like de iure are often spelled de jure. Longest novels. This is a list of the longest novels over 500,000 words published through a mainstream publisher.

Longest novels

The longest novel is Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus, originally published (1649–54) in 10 parts, each part in three volumes. Artamène is generally attributed to Madeleine de Scudéry.[1] Composing a list of longest novels yields different results depending on whether pages, words or characters are counted. Length of a book is typically associated with its size—specifically page count—leading many to assume the largest and thickest book equates to its length.

Word counts are a direct way to measure the length of a novel by a measure that is unaffected by variations of format and page size. Mathematics fiction books. These novels and other fiction books have some elements of mathematics, or feature real or fictional mathematicians.
