New Latin

New Latin (or Neo-Latin) is a post-medieval version of Latin primarily used in International Scientific Vocabulary cladistics and systematics.

The term came into widespread use towards the end of the 1890s among linguists and scientists.

Neo-Latin is used by classicists to describe the use of the Latin language for any purpose, scientific or literary, after the Renaissance (for which purpose they often use the date 1600).
