Reviews for Latin Grammar
`If you are looking to bin the old Kennedys and restock Latin grammars, then this is certainly worth considering, being competitively priced and easy to use.' Hilary Walters, Jact Review, Series 2, No.27, Summer 00. `There is a pleasing historical sense to the book, with short articles on Latin pronunciation in England and the development of Kennedy's primer, along with the gender rhymes, offered as a curiosity ... The grammar has a fresher, more modern appearance and style.' Hilary Walters, Jact Review, Series 2, No.27, Summer 00.
