Book: Formal Linguistics and the Teaching of Latin


Formal Linguistics and the Teaching of Latin: Theoretical and Applied Perspectives in Comparative Grammar
Editors: Renato Oniga, Rossella Iovino and Giuliana Giusti
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Description: This volume offers a coherent collection of 26 papers presented at an international conference held in November 2010, exploring the latest achievements of formal and comparative linguistics applied to the teaching of Latin. The three sections (syntax and morphology, semantics and pragmatics, history and theory of teaching) compare Latin with different ancient and modern languages, aiming to represent grammar rules as the product of mental processes. The book is addressed to linguists, teachers and students, who are looking for new perspectives to update their approach to classical Latin.
