Non Sequitur

What does non sequitur mean? There are a lot of terms used in English that are taken straight from the original Latin words. One is “non sequitur”. This means “it does not follow“.

So here is an example where you might use it:

Bob: “That’s a non sequitur.”

Non sequitur is Latin for “it does not follow.” It is most often used as a noun to describe illogical statements.
