The Horrors of the Latin Grammar Revisited Posted by on Oct 8, 2015 in Latin Language

For first time language learners (or even masters), the way and method a language handles their grammar ( and more specifically the oddities or exception rules in their grammar)

I wrote a posts in the past that help tackle some of the language’s difficulties, but I have also written this one to provide some additional information.

SUBJUNCTIVE

The following article goes over the use of the subjunctive if you still need assistance creating and forming the subjunctive- here is a valuable worksheet.
 Unraveling the Dark Side of the Subjunctive
OR….
If the approach I take in my post does not work for your studying style- check out this site.

ABLATIVE

This blog has had three past writers contribute articles on the Ablative (and yes, ablative absolute is discussed at length). But again if not to your liking- check out this site.

If these articles assisted you, but you require a printable handout. I would suggest (here). I often use these types of handouts as quick reference sources- which should not be relied on entirely but rather should exist to check your guess as to the type of Ablative.

GERUNDS & GERUNDIVES

These two grammatical forms give student such a hard time. I go over the differences and similarities in a post here. But options options options, check out this handout (here) and this post (here)

 

IRREGULAR VERBS

This is one topic that I haven’t covered, so check out the Latin’s Library’s worksheet (here).

SUPINE

In my opinion, I rarely see the supine, but sooooo often students try to force the supine onto grammatical structures that don’t want to be the supine. This past Latin Language Post (here) briefly touches on the subject. However, if you didn’t like this post or prefer a printable worksheet-check out (here and here)
