Excerpt from Elements of Latin Grammar in Connection With a Systematic and Progressive Latin Reader

The best elementary instruction in Latin is that which enables the student to read and understand the classical authors in the shortest possible time. This the author had constantly in view in preparing this work, which teaches Latin Grammar, and Latin Reading at the same time. It consists of a Grammar and of a Reader, containing a connected Roman history up to the battle of Zama.

1. The Grammar contains only those rules indispensable to a general knowledge of the language. While all the linguistic details of both etymology and syntax are kept out, all the great and prominent features of the Latin language are placed before the student. The rules are brief enough to be easily memorized, plain enough to be easily understood, and so thorough as to impress a true image of the language on the mind of the student. In the grammatical terms no essential and unnecessary deviation is made from the expressions rendered familiar by long usage. Sometimes new terms bad to be introduced, in accordance with many new features in our grammatical system. Those who object to these, should remember that all grammatical terms serve to condense thought.

2. The Reader is strictly adapted to the different sections of the Grammar. It it intended to he commenced together with the grammar, so that the Grammar should he studied in that order which is indicated over the chapters of the Header. Every chapter of the Reader contains a heading referring to a section of the Grammar, which must be studied and recited before the chapter is read. The student is enabled to translate every chapter of the Render by the Vocabularies. In the first Vocabulary, which belongs to the first book of the Reader (comprising the whole of Etymology), every case of nouns and adjectives, and every form of the verb, is literally rendered as far as the student, at the given place, has not yet studied such forms. At the same time, all the passages con-raining peculiar constructions are literally translated at the proper place in the vocabulary. Thus, for instance, in reading the first chapter, the student will find every word literally translated in the Vocabulary, and in the same form as it occurs in the Reader, except only the nouns of the first declension, which have just been studied in the grammar. Hence there is nothing left for the student but to give to the words the arrangement required in English.
