Excerpt from Probatio Latina: A Series of Questions Designed to Test the Progress of Learners in the Latin Language

I have throughout spoken of inflected words in the usual manner. I have done so because, while to persons who have been taught on the stem-system, either mode of pre sentation is equally intelligible, this could by no means be assumed to be true of those who have learned to regard the nominative case or the first person as the starting point and I desired to render the book as generally useful as I could. I mention this because I do not wish it to be under stood that my abstaining from giving the stems of inflected words is due, in the least degree, to any weakening of my faith in the enormous advantages of that system. On the contrary, in. Creased experience only enhances my surprise that so manifest an improvement should still be waiting for universal recog nition. To quote prof. G. Curtius. Erla'uf. C. 6. (eng. Tr. P. In the whole theory Of inflection, everything turns on the strong and sharp distinction between stem and termin ation. On this is based all analysis of forms. Even the pupil can easily be brought to understand that the stem of a noun, to go no further for an instance, which peculiarly and exclu sively conveys the meaning, runs through all the cases, while the terminations are added to it to denote the several cases, among which the nominative singular naturally has a place. Compared with all the earlier methods the stem-sys tem has the advantage of far greater simplicity.
