Elements of Latin

Excerpt from Elements of Latin Semi-annual admission of pupils, now so general in secondary schools, seems to require a text-book in Latin which shall naturally divide into two fairly complete and independent portions. It is to meet this need that the present work is primarily designed. By the plan herein followed, the pupil will have mastered by the mid-year the forms of inflection and a few elementary principles of the simple sentence. In the second part the principles of syntax suited to first-year work arc thoroughly treated, so that by the end of the year adequate equipment will have been gained for the reading of Caesar's Gallic War. No other work so fulfils all the requirements of second-year study - purity of diction, plainness of narrative style, interest of subject matter -as this wonderful man's account of the stupendous achievement by which he determined the development of civilization in Western Europe, and hence, largely, our own. To accustom the pupils to Caesar's style nearly all the sentences, except those in the earliest exercises, are taken with slight variation from Caesar's own story, and chiefly from the first book. The number of words in the working vocabulary is under 750, and they are those most frequently employed by Caesar in the Gallic War. The words given in each of the earlier vocabularies are used frequently in succeeding exercises to familiarize the student with them and to give facility in their use. For this reason extreme brevity has not been aimed at in the sentences, though they arc extremely simple in construction.
