Seite 352 - Germania and Agricola of Caius Cornelius Tacitus : With Notes for Colleges. By WS TYLER, Professor of the Greek and Latin Languages in Amherst College. 12mo, 193 pages.
Seite ii - Syntax has received in every part special attention. An attempt has been made to exhibit, as clearly as possible, that beautiful system of laws which the genius of the language — that highest of all grammatical authority — has created for itself.
Seite 352 - In it win be found : 1. A Latin text, approved by all the more recent editors. 2. A copious illustration of the grammatical constructions, as well as of the rhetorical and poetical usages peculiar to Tacitus. In a writer so concise it has been deemed necessary to pay particular regard to the connection of thought, and to the particles as the hinges of that connection.
Seite 7 - The Latin, like the English, has three persons and two numbers. The first person denotes the speaker ; the second, the person spoken to ; the third, the person spoken of. The singular number denotes one, the plural more than one.
Seite 4 - In the pronunciation of Latin, every word has as many syllables as it has vowels and diphthongs ; thus the Latin words, more, vice, acute, and persuade, are pronounced, not as the same words are in English, but with their vowel sounds all heard in separate syllables ; thus, more, vi-ce, a-cu-te, per-sua-de.
