  1. Thank you. I love good explanations. I wonder if there is an error…

    “There are a few exceptions, which I list below. I give first the nominative singular and then the ablative singular.”

    This had me running to an explanation of the ablative….

    1. Oops, you are right! I will correct this. I’m glad you liked the explanations, and this is a reminder that I need to write a post about the ablative!

  2. Livia,
    This is grand. I taught English grammar and writing and ancient history to 12 and 13 year olds. Most grammar books are dull and in their lack of sparkle. Well stated points get lost. This has sparkle and wonderful clarity. I tumbled to the fact that my 12 years old boys would eat up Homer if I read the Iliad to them and they were amazing in diagramming and parsing each line. ( not their favorite part of Homer. I was introducing them to Latin ( unheard of in California) and this would have been great!

    1. Hi Nancy, I am so glad that you think this post has sparkle! I try to make my explanations interesting as well as informative. That’s great that you were reading the Iliad to your students and introducing them to Latin. Not everyone has the opportunity to experience Latin so young!

  3. I love this, thank you! I might have missed them somewhere, but I think there are no examples of sentences using the vocative adjective case and I’m a confused on when that would be used. But happy I know how to spot it!

    1. Hi Meggan, I am so glad you loved the post! Oops, you are right about there being no examples with an adjective in the vocative – I have fixed this now 🙂
