By Martin Hartley 07 Nov 2011 5

I regard this book to be an essential text for anyone making a serious study of Latin. It is an essential companion to any Latin textbook (I'm using Wheelock's Latin). I have found this text to be an excellent quick-reference source when writing Latin compositions. It is an essential text, particularly to those who were not taught English grammar in school.

Review quote

If you are looking to bin the old Kennedys and restock Latin grammars, then this is certainly worth considering, being competitively priced and easy to use. Hilary Walters, Jact Review, Series 2, No.27, Summer 00. There is a pleasing historical sense to the book, with short articles on Latin pronunciation in England and the development of Kennedy's primer, along with the gender rhymes, offered as a curiosity ... The grammar has a fresher, more modern appearance and style. Hilary Walters, Jact Review, Series 2, No.27, Summer 00.
