Excerpt from Selections From Ovid: Edited, With Introduction, Notes and Vocabularies
For rules of Prosody and Quantity of Syllables see L. G. 184 - 6. In translation it will be of the utmost assistance to scan a line so as to be able to decide whether, for example, feminine a... djectives ending in a are short or long, that is, whether they are in the nominative or ablative sing.
Again, it is of the utmost importance in translation to translate at first quite literally and in strict accordance with the rules of Latin grammar already learned after wards the English may be improved by slightly turning the sentence and varying the idiom where necessary.
