Hippocrene is proud to bring back into print Leonhard Schmitz's classic "Grammar of the Latin Language, originally published in 1851. Among the chapters covered in this thorough examination of Latin grammar are orthography, noun declension, and verb conjugation. A special section on syntax and sentence structure helps to put the previous grammar in context. A unique feature of this timeless work is its analysis of etymologies, particularly the Greek origins of many Latin words. The book primarily focuses on Classical Latin from the "Golden" period (100-14 B.C.), but other variations of the language are also addressed.
