Taking the second page of 64 entries and multiplying that by a page count of 2300 gives 147,000 total entries. Using the Middle Liddell's second page of 60 entries and guessing about 850 dictionary pages...

In the 3rd declension, for ease and speed, we often say, "sissy em-eh," though I throttle us down sometimes so that we are forced to remember the individual letters. We don't try to hold the long syllables two ...

We used Karen Moh's "Latin's Not So Tough" series for our elementary school learning. It was a great foundation.
