Pronunciation
Etymology 1
Inherited from Latin latīnus; compare latín, latino, doublets which were borrowed later. Compare also Portuguese ladino (“learned, cultured”). The sense of "astute" or "crafty" developed from medieval times, when the word was used to describe scholars and learned people, who were familiar with Latin and were involved in a process of "Latinization", i.e. using and incorporating learned terms. It was also used as a general designation for Romance speakers in the Middle Ages, as opposed to others speaking different kinds of languages, especially Arabic in the context of Spain/Iberia (compare the name of Ladino, the Sephardic Jewish language of Spain, descended from a form of Old Spanish, as well as the Ladin of northern Italy). The sense of "mestizo" developed in colonial Central America when the term was originally applied to those indigenous people who came to speak only Spanish.[1]
Adjective

  1. astute, crafty, acute
