Latin lovers will love this book.

Those who study English may wonder why we drive on the parkway and park in the driveway...or why we cut a tree down and then cut it up...or why we can give someone a million thanks but not a hundred thousand.

Overview

Latin lovers will love this book.

Those who study English may wonder why we drive on the parkway and park in the driveway...or why we cut a tree down and then cut it up...or why we can give someone a million thanks but not a hundred thousand. Knowing a language means knowing its quirks, its special usages, and some of the things that it just never as a matter of fact says.

Horae Latinae helps you with some of the finer points of Latin. It will tell you the differences between opto and spero; plerique and plurimi; magis and plus; pecunia and nummus; necessitas and necessitudo; novus and recens; nunc and iam; aspectus and conspectus; and many other easily confused expressions.

Strongly recommended for upper intermediate, advanced, and professional levels, this book (or something quite like it) is in fact essential for all who are seeking a more precise understanding of the language. Superabundant examples make this work appealing as an inexpensive textbook, a standard reference for translators, a Latin phrasebook, or an ancillary workbook in all courses on Latin prose composition.

From the more than 480 keywords and expressions, here is a small excerpt: Last / Too late / Lately / Latin / Laugh / Learn / At least / Legislator / Leisure / Lend / Much less / Letter / In a letter / Liberty / Life / Light / Lightning / Like / Likely / Little / How little / Live / Long (adjective) / Long (adverb) / For a long while / No longer / Lose / Love / Lungs / Macedonian / Magnanimity / Majesty / Make a speech / Man / How many / Forced march / Marriage.

Horae Latinae explains Latin's own particular way of expressing such ideas, and it alerts Latinists to possible traps and misunderstandings.

This unique edition is revised, corrected, and slightly expanded; it has now been freshly formatted into (searchable) digital text (not a photographic reproduction).
