Additionally, to add to the complications of this difficult subject, Mr. Julius has decided not to use macrons to help his readers. As any beginning Latin student knows, macrons are marks placed above vowels to show that the vowel is a long vowel. The Romans would not have needed macrons because they would have heard the difference between words with long and short vowels. We, who are not listening to Latin spoken, need these macrons to assist us with our reading of Latin. Also, macrons are an easy way for us to distinguish between second and third conjugation verbs mentioned above. The future tense in the second and third conjugation is different and the macron or lack of one in the infinitive of a second or third conjugation verb will give us useful information. Also, macrons help us to identify the ablative case in first declension nouns. In my opinion macrons always should be included in introductory Latin texts.Read more ›
Biggest flaw however is the title. It is not introductory since it essentially covers every bit of Latin grammar and has lots of the common vocabulary. It isn't really made simple either, since it gives you loads of paragraphs on explaining.
This book shouldn't turn you off however, if you are a Latin learner that wants to learn it more in depth, but at the same time, in a more compact manner than other alternatives, this book is just for you! Others, probably not your first choice.
