As a lot of you know the Latin people occupied Great Britain for centuries. So then a lot of people spoke Latin and a lot of prest words in English come from Latin. For example, "street" comes from "strata", which means "camp". Then there are alot of English words which are Latin forms. Especially in medicine, there are a lot of them, like "pneumonia, bronchitis, thyroid, penis, appendicitis", and so on. As well as, words like "album, pendulum, addendum, auditorium", etc.
If you see the work reference page most abbreviations are in latin, like "per, in, data, cum, a.m., p.m., BRT., c., Cod., R.I.P, etc., ex, fer., gr., i.e., ind., lib., m.s.,n.b., nil, Ph.D., rubr., etc.
A long time ago I gave a lesson in a teachers' class in Hastings about it, because if you aren't Latin origin people, you can't realize how many words and abbreviations are from Latin. My English teacher was very interested in them and appreciated my lesson. I hope you will too.
