Publisher Comments:

Since 1867, students of Latin and their teachers have turned to this famous guide for instruction on grammar and usage. The work of a distinguished professor who taught classics for six decades, it is celebrated for its lucid and comprehensive treatment.The first third of the text focuses on etymology, exploring inflections of the substantive and adjective; adverbs, numerals, and pronouns; inflection of the verb; and the formation of words. Subsequent chapters advance to syntax, examining simple and compound sentences; the arrangement of words and clauses; figures of syntax and rhetoric; and principal rules of syntax. The text concludes with an extended section on prosody that discusses and illustrates the conventions of Latin verse. Helpful indexes feature information on everyday Roman life, including explanations of the calendar, weights and measures, money, and names. No Latin reference collection is complete without this volume, which is equally useful for classroom and independent study.

Book News Annotation:

The grammar was first published in 1867 and first revised in 1872; the third edition, considerably enlarged, was published by University Publishing Company, New York, in 1894 (Gildersleeve says 1895) and is reprinted here. The first section describes the parts of speech and the morphology by which words acquire such features as case, gender, tense, and number. The second section explains how to put phrases, clauses, and sentences together. Prosody, not now generally considered the concern of grammar, is taken up in a final section, with chapters on quantity, figures of prosody, and versification.
