answer guide/key to wheelocks?

Postby MDS » Sat Aug 16, 2003 4:08 am

Hello all,<br />I am very, very new to the world of Latin and while I am finding it an exciting challenge (not to mention having to relearn a substantial portion of English grammar!) I have thus far been unable to find an answer guide (either online or elsehwere) for Wheelocks Latin 6e. Does anyone know if one exists or the location of good websites I could check? Trying to get through it before September when school starts up again and the time crunch worsens...<br />-MDS

which edition do you have? mine is the 6th and it has an answer key right in the back of the book...<br /><br />if yours doesn't have that i'm sure one can be bought.<br /><br />check out http://www.hfac.uh.edu/mcl/faculty/arms ... h.ch1.html<br /><br />there doesn't seem to be a menu but by changing the last bit to Wh.ch2.html, Wh.ch3.html, etc, I got as far as lesson 9.

Thanks for the prompt reply! Wouldnt you know that when I flipped to the back I noticed the page numbers jumping which obviously denotes a book defect. While I'm at the bookstore exchanging it should I pick up the "Workbook for wheelocks latin 3rd ed" or is that superfluous?<br />MDS :)

I don't have the extra workbook so I'm not sure... however, there's a ton of stuff on the internet that is designed to accompany Wheelock, including interactive quizzes, crossword puzzles, etc. Just google for wheelock exercises and you'll find a bunch of sites that are free, so they might be better than the extra workbook and give you some variety.

Did you mean an answer key for the chapter specific assignments? I don't believe that those exist. The key in the back of the book is only for the Optional Self-Tutorial which is still pretty useful. Textkit is actually a living answer key ;D so if you choose to, you can use this forum to ask questions. The accompanying workbook is VERY easy, but may be a necessity since you are doing it on your own.

UPDATE: answer key is here http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... hp?p=10356

Benissimus is correct. The keys in the back of the book are only for the self-tutorial sections.<br /><br />Note:<br /> <br /> I have begun to find Wheelock's Latin to be a bit... sucky. Not to say that it is grammatically incorrect in any wise. However, it seems to be lacking elaborations on certain topics discussed; it leaves as many questions unanswered as answered questions

I've yet to see a beginner's grammer--for either latin or greek--that does not have that same pitfall... I suppose that there's only so much you can say in one shot, and wheelock is a big enough book as it is ;)

I agree with you. I certainly believe it is a good book for a beginner, but a book for a beginner it still is and, thus, leaves much to be desired.

I agree that Wheelocks does have its problems (in fact I was told to pick up the 3rd edition of it if possible) but compared to the Ecce Romani, Oxford and Cambridge I thought it was much more comprehensive. You are free to disagree. 8)
