It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: De Lingua Latina X. A New Critical Text and English Translation With Prolegomena And Commentary
Written By: Daniel J. Taylor
Series Title: Studies in the History of the Language Sciences

De Lingua Latina X has never been so courageously edited nor so daringly translated as in this long-awaited sequel to Taylor's Declinatio (SiHoLS 2). The editor's intimate familiarity with both the extant archetype and Varro's unique linguistic theory and practice make this volume indispensable for an understanding of LL X, one of the most important texts in the entire corpus of Latin grammatical writings. The stimulating Prolegomena introduce Varro, his revolutionary language science, book ten, and both the manuscript and the editorial traditions, and the Commentary explains in absorbing detail how and why the editor has set the text as he has. The world's foremost Varro scholar of this day has successfully combined classical philology and the history of linguistics to produce an inspired new edition and novel translation of book ten of Varro's magnum opus.
