Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read only the beginning so far. The book is very informative but old fashioned in its layout and author's style of writing. Right at the beginning on page 4 he mentions vowels changing the length when pronounced depending how they combine with consonants but he's rather terse and gives no examples nor elaborates. Page 10: he goes on about the roots of verbs and how the vowel of the root changes and again he doesn't give examples whereas a modern author would. The book was first published in 1963 and this is the third ed. 1991 (printed 2010) However it is good value and there is a copious PDF online giving answers and amplifications.
I've studied modern lang's and Latin and in both cases many modern "methods" use a lot of lot of gimmicky frivolousness; i.e. lots of colourfull glossy pages, pictures, different typefaces and to me they lack rigour and coherence. Warder is the other extreme ; oh how it's delightful when on finds something that has hit upon the middle way. Warder is good value and I suppose I have to knuckle down and get to grips with his delivery.
