This article focuses on the importance of Latin language in the western world. All major occidental have or have had at some time, a certain measure of extraterritorial acceptance. This reflects their Latinity. English or Spanish or French can answer a panoccidental need in so far as they are vectors of panoccidental forms of thought. Still more, if these languages have had an impact on extraoccidental peoples and extraoccidental forms of speech, they did so as representatives of an occidental cultural homogeneity.
