Modern Phonology and the Teaching of Latin.
Elerick, Charles
Classical Journal, v75 n2 Dec 1979-Jan 1980
Linguistics can be used explicitly in the teaching of foreign languages to mature students. Eight guidelines derived from this statement guide the discussion of the application of linguistics to the teaching of Latin verb paradigms to beginning students. The five tense/mood paradigms that are based on the present stem, that is, the present, imperfect, and future indicative, and the present and imperfect subjunctive, are presented in a way that can be used immediately in the Latin class. The phonological and morphological aspects of these verbal paradigms are dealt with according to a theory of how native speakers of Latin structured the given material in their linguistic unconscious.
