Overview

To read Latin quickly and easily, you need to master the prepositions. This book has been designed to give you the essentials that you need to make that happen: the explanations, the dictionary definitions, the usages, and the material for practice. Once you can handle the prepositional phrases speedily, your reading will be noticeably improved. You will also be able to approach any text with some increased feeling of confidence because you will already be familiar with those recurring particles known as prepositions. Presented here are over 6000 exemplary phrases to use as a reference. This book has two unique features: (1) a collection of 1500 prepositional phrases from select authors and works so that you can become familiar with authentic classical prepositional use; and (2) a full unpacking of almost all of the very difficult and confusing abbreviations used in Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary. The second feature will be of special interest to any scholar who wants to begin to develop a sense of the specifics of Latin literature. This handbook is an inexpensive way to get what you need to know about all the major Latin prepositions. It can serve as a secondary text at any level of Latin study.
