AP Tip- foreign words

Some foreign words and abbreviations have been accepted universally into the English language and may be used without any explanation

ie: Bon Voyage, versus, vs. ; et cetera, etc.

Other foreign words may not be understood universally, in which case a word or phrase needs to be paired with it and placed in a quotation.

ie: “ad astra per aspera,” a Latin phrase meaning “to the stars through difficulty.”
