It will be found only in works of poetry or high-brow works and not elsewhere (as in plays for the masses or in letters or elsewhere). Solum poeticis vel altissimis in operibus verbum invenitur, nec in carminibus popularibus nec in epistulis nec alibi.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
