Linguistic LingField(s):  Syntax

Query:   Dear LINGUISTs:

I am searching for the Latin original and the full citation of a
passage by Roger Bacon which is often cited by linguists (though
usually without a reference). The passage runs (in one translation)
''He that understands grammar in one language understands it in another
as far as the essential properties of grammar are concerned.''

Can someone help?

Thanks,

Dirk Elzinga
