Vulgar Latin (in Renaissance Latin, vulgare Latinum or Latinum vulgare) was the nonstandard form of the Latin language, or rather the various nonstandard forms – it is a blanket term, not a narrowly defined language. Because of its nonstandard nature, it had no official orthography, and only Classical Latin was used in writing. It is sometimes called colloquial Latin,[1] or Proto-Romance or Common Romance (particularly the late stage), as it is the origin of the modern Romance languages.
