Rome and Her Kings uses which grammar?

Postby Caelius » Fri Oct 09, 2009 10:28 pm

Salvete omnes.

We are using the reprint of "Rome and Her Kings" by Lowe and Freeman in my third-semester Latin class. In the back, there are exercises. In the introductory paragraph to the exercises, it says, "The section in the rules...refer to Allen's Latin Grammar." I've dug through Google Books and looked at all the editions I could easily find, but none of the grammars seem to match. For example, in one exercise, it says, "Nouns in apposition must be in the same case" and refers to Allen's, section 99. None of the editions I can find have a section 99 which talks about apposition; they are about other topics.

Does anyone know which edition of Allen's Latin Grammar goes with this text?

Salve Caeli
? Allen, An Elementary Latin Grammar, §§ 98,99,100: "On Apposition"
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

A happy coincidence! Apart from Allen & Greenough, A New Latin Grammar, it's the only other book by Allen on my bookshelf at home.
Concursum felicem! Separatìm â Novâ Grammaticâ Latinâ de Allen & Greenough, ille solus alius liber de Allen in pluteo librario apud me est.
