The Latin of M. semantically adheres closely to the norms of classical Latin; thus in prose paraphrases of the gospel unclassical features are replaced with colloquial expressions from early Latin comedy, in poetry the influence of Ovid is prominent. Some more conspicuous lexical choices reflect contemporary Latin or take up textual changes in editions of the classics. Medieval Latin is mostly present in spheres with a technical vocabulary of their own such as public administration and the church. Innovations in M.s Latin are not altogether rare, but usually follow models of derivations and composition from antiquity; in rare instances they include Italian loanwords.
