The Latin Language

Front Cover
University of Oklahoma Press, 1954 - Foreign Language Study - 372 pages
0 Reviews

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 Palmerís treatment of this so-called dead language reveals Latinís continuing vitality and "soul."
