Top Customer Reviews
"Latin verbs fall into four main patterns called 'conjugations' (= joined together, i.e. families of verbs)."
"The word 'perfect' in grammar means 'completed' (rather than 'faultless: compare 'imperfect', page 71). The perfect tense refers to a completed action in the past."
"'Pluperfect' literally means 'more than perfect': it refers to something that 'had already' happened at a point in the past referred to by a perfect or imperfect tense."
Writing in a refreshingly relaxed style ("A vocative is usually easy to spot in a sentence. It is often separated off by a comma or commas."), the author pinpoints common mistakes throughout the book, and includes lists of "Important words with more than one meaning" and "Words easily confused".
With its contents carefully designed to encompass everything needed by those sitting GCSE, this book will provide reassurance and an excellent structural basis for revision.
Just a very well written book which attempts to make Latin, which can seem overwhelming at times, incredibly simple -and succeeds!
