Title: Formal Linguistics and the Teaching of Latin
Subtitle: Theoretical and Applied Perspectives in Comparative Grammar
Edited By: Renato Oniga
Rossella Iovino
Giuliana Giusti

This volume offers a coherent collection of 26 papers presented at an
international conference held in November 2010, exploring the latest
achievements of formal and comparative linguistics applied to the teaching of
Latin. The three sections (syntax and morphology, semantics and pragmatics,
history and theory of teaching) compare Latin with different ancient and modern
languages, aiming to represent grammar rules as the product of mental
processes. The book is addressed to linguists, teachers and students, who are
looking for new perspectives to update their approach to classical Latin.
