Overview
Featuring a traditional, grammar-based approach, A New Latin Primer offers beginning students a solid overview of Latin grammar, syntax, and vocabulary. It provides concise, straightforward grammatical explanations and illustrates them with unadapted Latin examples so that students can learn from Roman authors how to employ the syntax under discussion. Each of the thirty-six lessons contains twelve short practice sentences along with fifteen passages of unadapted Latin from a wide variety of important classical and medieval authors: Catullus, Vergil, Horace, Ovid, Martial, Caesar, Cicero, Livy, Sallust, Tacitus, Augustus, Seneca, Pliny the Younger, Pliny the Elder, Augustine, Bede, inter alios. Explanatory notes and definitions of unfamiliar vocabulary appear immediately below the passages. All of the passages in a single lesson are tailored to one or two aspects of Roman culture or history, demonstrating how the study of Latin provides first-hand access to the texts that shape our understanding of the Roman world. Ideal for use in introductory courses, as a self-study volume, or as an intensive review, A New Latin Primer is accompanied by a Student Workbook and a Companion Website that contain a variety of drills, additional practice sentences, translation practice, and word games. An Instructor's Resource Manual is also available to adopters.
