apothecary's Latin (uncountable)
- (idiomatic, obsolete) barbarous Latin; badly-spoken Latin.
- 1842, Colburn's New Monthly Magazine and Humorist Page 333
- As this bit of apothecary's Latin was quoted to the town-clerk at a corporation dinner, and was by him translated to the mayor to mean that the municipal body had not a leg to stand upon, it gave very serious offence indeed.
