Description - New Latin Syntax by E.C. Woodcock

This book offers a historical account of the chief Latin construction. The twenty-five chapters are arranged in such an order as to make it useful as a progressive revision course in syntax for Advanced Level and University students. The account of each Latin construction is fully documented with literary examples, drawn from the series of authors from Plautus to Tacitus. The book uses, wherever possible, historical explanations instead of the standard statistical rules usually found in textbooks on prose composition - which inevitably leave a litter of unexplained exceptions. The book equips students with the tools to interpret texts as well as to write correct Latin, and the index of passages quoted makes it useful as a work of reference for teachers.
