LA 101: Elementary Latin
Resources for the study of Latin:
"an interactive Latin grammar helper for Macintosh
computers only." May be downloaded to
your computer free of charge. (You have to have your own
machine to do this -- the College's lab machines won't
let you access their disk drives.) Available in a format
keyed to Wheelock. "Latinitas works this way: first
it randomly looks up a noun, adjective or verb suited to
your level and then inflects it unpredictably, limiting
itself to the declensions and degrees or moods and tenses
at that level. Once you have grammatically described the
word, Latinitas evaluates youranswers. It then allows you
to make corrections and be re-evaluated."
and Greenough, A New Latin Grammar: A classic
vade-mecum for beginning students, now available on the
Web in hyperlinked form.
Grote's Study Guide to Wheelock: Baffled by
Wheelock's explanations, which seem to assume that you
know Latin before you learn it? This free, hypertext
version of a valuable companion text to Wheelock is for
you. Grote gives clear, full accounts of everything in
Wheelock. It is not perfect, but it does help. You may
print out whatever you need, chapter by chapter.
Lexicon: If you would like a good Latin dictionary
(free!) to use on your computer, visit this site. The
dictionary is available in versions for the Mac OS,
Windows 95, and Windows NT. Again, you need your own
computer to take advantage of this opportunity; lab
computers won't cooperate.
