It's 'englishized' Latin
Thank you R1.
I've heard of Roman and Eclisiastical Latin, but never englishized.
Of course, I have not studied Latin in 50 years. Yes, I am an eldergay.
And, I probably mispelled Eclisiastical.
R1, Are you sure? I would have thought it would be pronounced bonuh fighdeh, with the "s" being silent.
R2, I think it's Ecclesiastical. There is no such word as "englishized." You would say the English version.
