10 Latin Phrases You Should Know

I studied Latin for 5 years so I had no difficulty translating these ten phrases that are still in common use today:

caveat emptor, persona non grata, habeas corpus, cogito ergo sum, e pluribus unum, quid pro quo, ad hominem, ad majorem dei gloriam, memento mori and  sui generis
How many are you familiar with?
