| These pages are devoted to reviewing the Latin grammar that we have encountered our seminar.  As such they make no claim to comprehensiveness;  instead they summarize the grammatical and syntactic concepts essential to reading Latin prose. |
A few words on format:
  • All concepts are first defined as an idealized formula, which describes not only individual grammatical requirements, but also how they relate syntactically.

  •  
  • All concepts are keyed to actual examples from our texts.

  •  
  • 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.
Thus far there are three pages, one for nouns, one for adjectives, and one for subordinate clauses.

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.
