Excerpt from The Genitive of Value in Latin and Other Constructions With Verbs of Rating: Dissertation
My purpose in this monograph is twofold: (i) to determine the origin of the genitive of value and (2) to ascertain the limits of the different combinations: what genitives a... nd ablatives are used in expres sions of valuation and with what verbs they are combined; and to what extent genitives, ablatives, and verbs vary in different authors and different spheres. Throughout the paper I have endeavored to show as clearly as possible the historical development of the individual expressions and of the construction as a whole. In my treatment of the expressions of worthlessness (nikili, ¿occi, etc.) I have departed from the strictly syntactical phase of the subject and added such material as is available on the origin of the words or phrases. The sections on boni consulere, aequi bonique facere, nihil pensi esse, and pro nihilo have been reprinted by permission from my article in Studies in Honor of Basil L. Gildersleeve (johns Hopkins Press, Baltimore).
