This is a small-enrolment class. If the time that has been slotted for this course absolutely will not work for you,
please contact me well before September so that we can see about working out another set of times.
Those of you with an iPhone, iPad, or the like might consider the SPQR app which gives you access to Lewis & Short's A Latin Dictionary (the standard scholarly Latin lexicon in the English-speaking world for most of the 20th-century) in an attractive interface, along with a number of other features.
Resource sheets for LATN 112, 113, and 202 are available at: http://homepage.usask.ca/~jrp638/latin/studsheets.html
Notes, worksheets, and keys to quizzes and examinations (mainly for Latin 112/113) can be found at: http://homepage.usask.ca/~jrp638/latin/
The main goals of the course are (1) to complete the general introduction to basic Latin grammar and syntax begun in Latin 112 and 113, and (2) to develop the students' basic skills in the translation and analysis of standard Latin prose. To accomplish these ends, students will need to become familiar with the use of a standard Latin lexicon and grammar. A certain amount of prose composition and translation at sight will also be necessary.
After a very brief review, we will begin by working through to the end of Section 5 in the first-year text (Jones and Sidwell). The remainder of the term will be devoted to the close reading of Petronius' tale of the Widow of Ephesus. In the latter part of the term we will also review and refine our understanding of Latin grammar.
Emphasis will be placed on the precise translation, with grammatical analysis, of prepared texts, but examinations will include a significant amount of Latin to be translated at sight. The occasional quiz is a possibility: such quizzes would cover material introduced in the Reading Latin grammar, passages assigned for translation, and/or translation at sight.
Dictionaries and grammars may be permitted in the case of sight passages, but all translations of and comments on prepared passages in an examination setting will be done without the use of any external aids. No outside resources will be permitted for any section of any course examination unless specific written instructions have been provided indicating otherwise.
