One of the best available sources for Latin grammar. A handful of the translations are a bit odd, but nothing too damaging.
Almost finished, but I can say not only is this the best Latin grammar I've encountered, it's the best grammar period: it makes the language imminently readable.Other grammarians would do well to emulate this text.
The learning curve was very steep and my Professor, who has a Ph.D in Latin, thought some of the translations were skewed. It helped, but it would have been impossible to learn from without a skilled teacher to lead the class.
This is a fun way to learn Latin....just in case you were looking for one. It's my favorite text to use in teaching Latin. Worthy. Instead of the frequently parched Roman material, the author builds the readings upon the Metamorphoses, which make for far more compelling reads, IMO.
I had this for a class 3000 years ago, and don't remember much. Figured it's time to brush up on my Latin. Salve, Magister!
DNF Got so close though. Translated over two thirds with my Latin teacher.
Fantastic! Very clear and concise. The appendices are laid-out in a way that is both helpful and intuitive. Learning from text is, I think, one of the easier and more rewarding ways to learn a language. This book does it well. I refer to it, even years later.
One of my favorite Latin intro texts.
If you want to learn English grammar, study Latin.This book offers a very engaging way to study Latin.
Trying the e-book via the web to see how much of this Latin has stuck from earlier days. Surprising. I can understand easy stuff at least. Yes, Latin is still fun.
This is an outstanding text!
