From Our Editors

Lamenting the loss of LatinLamenting the loss of Latin? While this classic language used to be a staple subject in classrooms and used in many Christian church services, it has slowly been going the way of the dinosaur. Realistically, however, Latin is still vital for both the medical and legal professions. Let Latin live on and revitalize this distinctive language with James Morwood’s Latin Grammar.

Editorial Reviews

`There is a pleasing historical sense to the book, with short articles on Latin pronunciation in England and the development of Kennedy's primer, along with the gender rhymes, offered as a curiosity ... The grammar has a fresher, more modern appearance and style.' Hilary Walters, Jact Review, Series 2, No.27, Summer 00.
