Overview

This excellent study traces the relation of Latin to other Indo-European languages and guides the reader lucidly through Latin phonology, morphology, and syntax. It should prove fascinating not only to Latinists but also to linguists generally and, expecially, to students of Romance languages. Over the years, readers have found that Palmer's treatment of this so-called dead language reveals Latin's continuing vitality and "soul."

Leonard R. Palmer was Professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Oxford and the author of over fifteen books, among them The Latin Language (University of Oklahoma Press).
