Writing Latin

Excerpt from Writing Latin: Book One Second Year Work The method of this little book is intended to provide a rational and systematic treatment of the difficulties which assail the beginner. The order of subjects is unconventional. Beginning with the simplest forms of statement, the development of topics has aimed to bring together things naturally associated in the mind, and therefore often confounded. For instance, the Possessive Dative and the Possessive Genitive are contrasted in the same exercise; likewise the Infinitive with Subject Accusative and the Indirect Question. The confusion which arose under the unnatural method of studying such things at different times disappears when the pupil must associate and compare in the same lesson things alike in English, but unlike in Latin. The gulf between English idiom and the technical statements of the grammar is further lessened by Hints, following and supplementing the grammatical references. These are written from the standpoint of one attempting to recognize in the formulas of English the marks of their corresponding Latin constructions. It is expected that teachers will insist on thorough study of the Hints, as of equal importance with the grammar in preparation for writing the exercises. By the postponement of certain subjects to Book Two, time is gained for necessary practice in the fundamentals. Not until frequent repetition has insured something like mastery of the Indicative Mood and the common caseconstructions are the other moods introduced.
