Ch. 9 - Help Remembering the Demonstratives

Does anyone have any advice remembering the demonstratives?

I guess I will have to rely upon the brute force repetition to remember.

Thanks, in advance, for any help.

Commentary

D'Ooge's text seem to have several advantages over Wheelock's Latin, yet when combined the two textbooks are superior.

I really like D'Ooge Book better than Wheelock's!!!

Just by gleeming over D'Ooge's book, I think its superior to Wheelock's Latin textbook! I will still refer to Wheelock's Latin textbook, though.

I wish that I had it to begin with.

I appreciate the information. I definitely want to be able to read Ancient Greek Philosophy in the orginal Greek. The ability to read the Classics and the New Testament in Greek would be nice, too.
