Latin Links


The textbooks for this course are used by many other Universities and schools, some of which have supplementary material available on the Web. Our course pages may have links to particular resources for individual assignments throughout the semester, on the relevant assignment pages.
These pages list the resources which are generally available. You do not need to visit them all, but if at any time you wish to do extra exercises or to read some other professor's course notes, you are encouraged to explore them.

Latin resources on the Web are numerous - there are several archives of texts, and on-line versions of Latin textbooks and grammar books. The textbooks mostly date from the nineteenth century and often require a knowledge of formal English grammar.

There are Church-related sources with Latin texts, either sung, spoken, or written. These can give help with the pronunciation of Latin in the Church.

You-Tube and similar sites have Latin video and audio files, where you can hear other speakers and test your comprehension skills.

Radio Finland and Radio Bremen post the News in Latin, and there is a Latin section of Wikipedia - "Vikipedia"

When using grammar resources, you need to be aware that there are several different conventions for listing the cases for nouns and adjectives. You will meet the sequence Nominative-Genitive-Dative-Accusative-Ablative (as in our edition of Wheelock, and in the American edition of the Cambridge course) - this originated in Germany, and is one of the systems used in the USA.

The system Nominative-Vocative-Accusative-Genitive-Dative-Ablative for listing cases originated in Britain and is also used in the USA. Students who are studying Greek at ENMU will be familiar with this sequence as it used in our Greek textbooks.

There is a Locative case (more important in Russian) which is rare as a separate case in Latin and is usually not listed (see Wheelock, Chapter 37, pages 261-262)

Don't let the variations in sequences bother you - it is much more important to be able to read a word in a sentence and to see how it fits into the sentence, than to write its forms out in a particular sequence.
