Excerpt from An Elementary Latin Grammar
This Grammar is intended to give such information as is necessary for starting a learner in Latin. The troublesome nomenclature common to many School Grammars is as far as possible avoided; and a Short Catechism of Syntax takes the pla... ce of the usual Latin Rules.
In the treatment of Latin Accidence the beaten tracks pointed out by immemorial usage have been generally ad hered to. The principal change is the subdivision of the Perfect into two separate Tenses, conformably to its twofold usage, (a) as 3. Present Past, (6) as a Simple Past. This alteration will compel every boy who meets with a Perfect to stop, if only as part of his parsing lesson, and re¿ect which Tense is meant. It also enables us to group the Tenses in the paradigm under the heads of Primary and Historic, a distinction important for boys to remember.
