More Latin

And in the acquisitions department, I’ve taken some of my bloggercon overtime, which I had strictly earmarked for moving expenses, and misappropriated a chunk of it towards some Latin books.

Allen & Greenough
19c grammar. Updated several times, most recently a year or two ago. Pretty standard for classicists, seemingly — often cited.
Smith’s English-Latin Dictionary
Reprinted by the good folks at Bolchazy-Carducci, from the 1870 edition. For when I want to make snarky little asides lingua latina.
Woodcock’s Syntax
A pleasurable foray into syntax. My medieval prof. kept talking about how awesome Woodcock is. So I’m all, hmm, maybe Woodcock is the thing for me! And sure enough, I am definitely a Woodcock fan so far. If I finish it it’ll be the second book of this sort I’ve read, after “The Latin Sexual Vocabulary”.

    What’s in a name?

  2. Desultor Says:

    Um, if I remember the quotation correctly, a Woodcock by any other name would smell as sweet?
