are devoted to reviewing the Latin grammar that we have encountered in
First Catilinarian. As such they make no claim to
comprehensiveness; instead they summarize the grammatical and syntactic
concepts essential to reading the oratory of Cicero.
A few words on format:
Thus far there are three pages, one for nouns,
one for adjectives,
and one for subordinate
All concepts are first defined as an idealized formula,
which describes not only individual grammatical requirements, but also
how they relate syntactically.
Each concept is keyed to an actual example or two
from the First Catilinarian, e.g. 1.6, which means "section 1, line
References to Moreland and Fleischer's text are given
in parentheses where appropriate, e.g. (MF 119).
Each concept is also keyed to Allen and Greenough's
New Latin Grammar (AG), which is the bible of Latin grammars.
Furthermore, these keys are linked to an online
version of AG, which is part of the Perseus
Project at Tufts University.
It is hoped that the arrangement and layout of
these pages speak for themselves. For the sake of convenience, however,
there follows an index, a visual table of contents.
