The present work is devoted to the Latin language, its history, and its educational value. It will prove interesting and instructive to the more ambitious student. It is intended for the secondary school, the college student, and aims to furnish such grammatical information as is ordinarily required in undergraduate courses. Latin is an ancient Italic language. Modern Romance languages are continuations of dialectal forms (Vulgar Latin) of the language. Additionally many students, scholars, and some members of the Christian clergy speak it fluently, and it is still taught in primary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions around the world. Latin is still used in the creation of new words in modern languages of many different families, including English. Latin has had a significant influence in the formation of English at all stages of its development. To understand the English language thoroughly it is necessary to have a knowledge of Latin. This is caused by the fact that Anglo-Saxon language (Old English), had borrowed many words from Latin, either directly or through French.Many of the most common polysyllabic English words are of Latin origin.
