Thoroughly improved, corrected and reset, this second edition of Kennedy’s New Latin Primer from Tiger of the Stripe’s language imprint, Tiger Xenophon, was published on 17 July 2019. As last time, there are separate US and UK editions, although both editions are available on both sides of the Atlantic.
As last time, there are separate UK and US versions, although both are available on both sides of the Atlantic. We wouldn’t have bothered if it had simply been a matter of a few spellings. Unfortunately, nouns, adjectives and pronouns are declined in a different order in the UK and in the US. While we in the UK go Nominative, Vocative, Accusative, Genitive, Dative, Ablative, the Americans use the order Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, Vocative, Ablative. It is very hard for anyone who has learnt one order to adjust to the other, so we feel obliged to give customers the choice
The previous edition was set in Myriad, an attractive sans-serif. The new edition is set in an equally attractive typeface called Alegreya Sans which is, I think, a little more readable.
We have a number of other projects in the pipeline.

Tiger Xenophon’s books are available from Amazon sites throughout the world. We were taking advantage of Amazon’s OneLink technology which allows a single link to redirect to the correct page in your local Amazon store. Unfortunately, Amazon has imposed strict criteria on the use of their API and our sites were not driving enough traffic.
As a result, we can no longer use OneLink and are having to create new links for every book on both the Tiger Xenophon and the Tiger of the Stripe websites. This is a major amount of work and we have had to restrict links to the US and UK sites. If you want to find one of our books on any other Amazon site, try copying and pasting the ISBN into the Amazon search bar.
