Kennedy’s New Latin Primer

Benjamin Hall Kennedy
Revised by Gerrish Gray

A new edition will be available shortly.

The book usually known as Kennedy’s Revised Latin Primer has remained, with good reason, the pre-eminent Latin reference grammar in British schools and universities for many decades. Kennedy's New Latin Primer from Tiger Xenophon is the first entirely new edition in two generations.

As well as clearer and more legible typography, this new edition has been modernised for today's readers.

The sections on pronunciation have been revised to reflect modern scholarship.

An Introduction to Vulgar Latin

Charles Hall Grandgent

The modern study of Classical Latin creates the illusion that it is a precisely-defined and immutable language; but all living languages are changing continuously, and Latin was no exception. Even in the Classical period many varieties of Latin were written and spoken, and as the Empire collapsed Latin, especially the spoken language of the common people, evolved. This language, Vulgar Latin, not the medieval Latin of learned scholars, evolved further into the Romance languages.

This book traces the development of Vulgar Latin and will therefore be of interest to medievalists and students of Romance languages.
