Item description for Kennedy's New Latin Primer (US edition) by G Gray B H Kennedy...
The book usually known as Kennedy's Revised Latin Primer has remained, with good reason, the pre-eminent Latin reference grammar in British schools and universities for many decades. Kennedy's New Latin Primer from Tiger Xenophon is the first entirely new edition in two generations, and the first to be offered in a form suitable for the American market. As well as clearer and more legible typography, this new edition has been modernized for today's readers. In earlier editions the English was occasionally almost as alien to the novice as the Latin - with, for instance, quocumque being translated as t soever. This and many other relics of a bygone age have been revised without the "dumbing down" which afflicts so many modern textbooks. The sections on pronunciation have been revised to reflect modern scholarship.
