Alexander and Nicholas Humez have fashioned an easy-going and satisfying introduction to the language that is the wellspring of the mother tongue. Their brief history of Classical and Vulgar Latin, explanation of the language's grammatical and sound systems, translation exercises, synopsis of grammar, and glossaries of Latin-English and English-Latin will enhance our understanding of every aspect of literature and the world of ideas. In addition, Latin for People contains two closing chapters, hailed as 'invaluable' by The Classical Outlook: one that translates all the readings in the book and one that suggests further readings.

Latin Grammar: Preparation for the Reading of the Missal and Breviary
Latin Grammar
Preparation for the Reading of the Missal and Breviary
Paperback      ISBN: 0895550024

The aim and scope of Scanlon's LATIN GRAMMAR are to prepare those with no previous knowledge of Latin to read the Missal and Breviary. Unlike most First Year Latin textbooks, it is not an introduction to the reading of Caesar. Its twenty lessons embrace Latin Grammar completely, from the first declension to the various uses of the subjunctive. Well-planned exercises, lessons and vocabulary provide a solid foundation in Latin. After the student has made a fair start, he will encounter reading lessons, which are connected passages from the two liturgical sources for which the whole book is a preparation. A valuable part of the book is the Latin-English vocabulary. In it and throughout the book, the accented syllable is marked in all Latin words of more than two syllables. The one-year course of study provided by this textbook should enable a diligent student to read the Missal and Breviary with reasonable facility.

This excellent study traces the relation of Latin to other Indo-European languages and guides the reader lucidly through Latin phonology, morphology, and syntax. It should prove fascinating not only to Latinists but also to linguists generally and, expecially, to students of Romance languages. Over the years, readers have found that Palmer's treatment of this so-called dead language reveals Latin's continuing vitality and soul.
