Reviews - What do customers think about A Latin Grammar?

Great reference  Mar 27, 2008
This is a great reference grammar for anyone studying Latin. Complete, concise, portable, well-organized, and cheap. It has short, to-the-point explanations of all points of Latin grammar. Perfect for the beginning/intermediate student of Latin who just needs a quick explanation of usage or forms. There are excellent tables of forms for nouns, adjectives, verbs, pronouns, etc. that are very helpful for review. The only problem i have with this book is the omission of 'v' in favor of 'u' throughout, hence 'vivo' is spelled 'uiuo' making the obvious derivative "vivacious" not as obvious. I understand the argument, but if I'm not mistaken wasn't 'V' the letter that was used in Classical Latin? 'IESVS CHRISTVS' not 'IESUS CHRISTUS'. Also, if we want to read Latin as Cicero did shouldn't we eliminate punctuation LOWER-CASE LETTERS AND WORDSPACINGTHESECONVENTIONSWERENOTUSEDUNTILHUNDREDSOFYEARSLATER That said, this is a great little reference grammar for those starting out in Latin.. buy it!
Pretty Good  Feb 28, 2008
This is small and compact yet still has more than enough information readily at hand. One nice thing is that for the paradigms, for instance, something other than the usual 'porto' and 'femina' are used. This isn't really important, but it's nice. Also each grammar rule has a couple of illustrated sentences, which often show how to recast English thought into Roman thought.
It has a few paragraphs on the pronunciation of Latin in England that, while not particularly useful and vaguely interesting, does show what classical --as opposed to Church -- pronunciation is/was.
One bit of pretentiousness: the author is "delighted to have banished the letter 'v' from the Latin alphabet. It was never there." Maybe not, but neither were lower case letters.
But as a one volume, fairly inclusive grammar, it's worth the price.
Most concise Latin grammar available  May 12, 2007
This book is a must have for the student of Latin. It is by far the most concise book on Latin grammar out there. It is excellent for review and as a reference tool. It is not a textbook and should not be used to learn the langauge. Wheelock and others are more helpful for that purpose. But you have already studied a year or two of Latin and need an occaisonal refresher on the conjugations, declension or grammatical rules this is a highly useful book to own. It is remarkably well organized and I have found it especially useful as a way of reviewing and reinforcing previously learned rules and forms.
Short and sweet  Mar 17, 2005
This is not a course in Latin but on the other hand it is not a reference grammar either. As the introduction says, "it aims to be a 'primer' (a first book) and at the same time something more than that." In fact, it is a short introduction to all the major grammatical points of the language as well as a handy reference for the accidence, without covering all the fine points you would expect to find in a true reference grammar like Gildersleeve. I particularly like the convenient groupings of things like place words (ubi, hic, illic, inde, etc.) and some of the confusing adverbs and conjunctions like quidem, quin, quominus, and quamuis (not quamvis, note; the letter "v" is not used in this book). There are a few short exercises, but no keys. Appendices cover dates, money, Roman names, literary terms, and weights and measures. A short vocabulary includes only words used in the exercises. All in all, a surprising amount of information is packed into less than 200 pages, yet the book does not feel at all dense or cramped.
An Accessible Guide to the Latin Language  Jan 14, 2002
The Latin grammar by James Morwood is a smoothly flowing, accessible guide to the Latin language, providing many short sentence examples and explaining nouns and noun inflection, adjectives, adverbs, verb conjugation, and sentence construction in depth. The readability is excellent, and the information presented is easily utilized.
