* Many of the songs composed by YukiKajiura use the ConLang "Kajiuran" which is reminiscent of an odd blend of Japanese and Latin (used primarily when lyrical meaning is less relevent then the melodies and emotions that certain word sounds can express).

* ''FarmerGilesOfHam'', a comic short story written by JRRTolkien and set in pseudo-Medieval England, contains a good deal of Latin, in place names, inscriptions, and so forth. It is all correct, Professor Tolkien being a linguist, but this trope is still acknowledged and played with. While dogs could generally speak in the [[CommonTongue vulgar tongue]] but not "Book-latin", the farmer's dog Garm "could not talk even dog-latin".

[[GratuitousGreek Greek]] is often used interchangeably with Latin for such purposes (as in the ''-opolis'' example above); few writers bother to make a distinction.

** At first, ''Film/JurassicPark'''s movie [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology looked a bit odd to palaeontologists]], as the "velociraptors" were far too large (actual members of the genus ''Velociraptor'' were about the same size as chickens). Then along came a discovery of a raptor-family dinosaur in Utah, every bit as big as the raptors in the movie and even bigger. It was dubbed ''Utahraptor spielbergi''. Technically, the animal is now called ''Utahraptor ostrommaysorum''. Another scientist, however, named a species of pterosaur (flying reptiles related to the dinosaurs) of the genus ''Coloborhynchus'', "''Coloborhynchus spielbergi''", although its validity as a separate species of ''Coloborhynchus'' is currently under debate.
