5.0 out of 5 stars A book that really *explains* Latin grammar, 26 April 2014
I have never before come across a grammar book that explains not just the meaning of grammatical terms but also their etymology - their literal sense. For example:
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than the tape-fixed electric blankets, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this because of the fitting system. It lives up to expectations in this respect. It is also good to see that the heating element extends almost to the edge of the bed.
