polyglot

polyglot (POL-ee-glot) - adj., speaking, writing, or written in several languages. n., someone who speaks several languages; a book with the same text in several languages, esp. a Bible; a mixture or confusion of languages.


Multilingual. Generally used for more than three, as until then we have the more precise bilingual and trilingual. Adopted in early 16th century from Latin, from Ancient Greek polýglōttos, many-tongued, from poly-, many + glôtta, tongue/language.
