    Book Description:

    From the first encounter with the Latin language to its full presentation, the objective of Ossa Latinitatis Sola is to get people into immediate contact with and understanding of Latin authors, and for these encounters to grow into a love and use of the entire language in all its literary types and periods of time and authors of the past 2,300 years.

    Iamdudum exspectas, optime sodalis, librum qui fundamenta de modo Fosteriano docendi unum in locum conferat. Quo facto editores a me petierunt ut Exordium scribam quo animus tuus, ut opinor, ardentius excitetur ad hanc viam Latinae docendae et discendae linguae sequendam. Etenim si ego, qui nullis in aliis studiis nisi scientificis versatus sum, lingua Latina institui et aliqua antiquarum litterarum cognitione erudiri potui, nemo est quin, consilia Reginaldi secutus, facultatem legendi, scribendi, et loquendi Latine adipiscatur.

    Quodsi nihil magis valet ad linguam Latinam ediscendam quam diligentissime et accuratissime cuiusque verbi formam necnon totius sententiae significationem observare ac omnino perscrutari, insipientis est...

    Today we join ourselves to millions of people who in history knew Latin and used Latin, to millions of people who throughout the ages studied Latin, mastered Latin and taught Latin, and to people who have left innumerable monuments and eternal creations of Latin for the past twenty-three hundred years.

    Latin and its literature are human creations and consequently are learnable and workable by people on planet earth. Latin did not drop down from heaven but was born and grew and evolved and changed for all these centuries.

    Latin is not dead, and it will never die, just as Bach...

    As you begin this Latin adventure, we are speaking to you after having revised this book,Ossa Latinitatis Sola, and having written the initial draft of the second book in this series,Ossium Carnes Multae. The working of the Latin language, we wish to impress upon you, must be perceived and emphasized from the first encounter and illustrated with numerous examples. A thorough understanding and appreciation of the following principles will be your salvation in approaching Latin. These principles will save you an infinity of time in redoing and correcting your understanding or renderings into any language on earth. The...

  12. SECUNDA EXPERIENTIA (pp. 201-250)

    According to our program of five Latin Experiences the interested person must be advised that the Second Experience is not the second level of any kind of systematic treatment of the language. This is because of the nature of the word “language,” which comes from the Latin wordlingua, which means “tongue” or “speech” or “language.” Our conviction has always been that as soon as we learn some element of the language, and of course the First Experience gave us ample material, we should start to use it as a language, that is, as a spoken means of communication.

    The...

  13. TERTIA EXPERIENTIA (pp. 251-454)

    After our first taste and use of the Latin language in the First Experience and perhaps also orally in the Second Experience, we are eager not to neglect the things we have learned already, but to repeat them naturally, adding details every day, and to fill out our understanding of the Latin language in this Third Experience.

    This year of our Latin training has proven in the past to be the most dif-ficult of the five Experiences for the simple reason that it introduces many concepts about verbs and the use of verbs and expressions that are practically unknown to...

  14. QVARTA EXPERIENTIA (pp. 455-650)

    After the First and Third Experiences, we come out on top in the Fourth Experience to refine some elements already learned and to add a number of important things. We shall add instructions about some verbal usages including the conditionals and give several special usages of the other noun and adjective functions. We shall present in the last two encounters of this Experience a brief introduction to poetic meter and a few insights into how the Latin language changed first under the influence of the Scriptures and then in a later age of its magnificent history.

    With this Fourth Experience...

  15. QVINTA EXPERIENTIA (pp. 651-744)

    THE FIFTH EXPERIENCE SHOULD theoretically include no new material of the Latin language inasmuch as this has been covered in the First, Third, and Fourth Experiences. In this Fifth Experience, the pleasure of the teacher and of the students will be the daily encounter with every phrase and element of the Latin language and every kind of Latin literature and the daily development of their own oral practice, with the help of a complete Latin dictionary like Lewis and Short.

    Spoken Latin will accompany the readings, as the students’ own contribution to Latin creativity. The vocabulary will increase with the...
