3.0 su 5 stelle me paenitet dicere... 26 ottobre 2016
Di Nick - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Having heard of the famous Reginaldus and his approach for years, I'll admit that I was very excited about this book and preordered it long ago. Now that it's here, I have to admit to some disappointment which I hope will disappear over time as I spend more time with the book. Here are my initial thoughts:

1) While there are regular reminders of the author's disdain for grammatical charts and tables, every chapter is essentially one lengthy explanation of a particular concept with a few examples thrown in, with much encouragement to essentially sit down and learn the dictionary.
2) It reminds me a bit of Amo, Amas, Amat... and All That: How to Become a Latin Lover. Mount attempted to turn the Latin language and all the various forms and rules into a novel, and this is similar at times.
3) The selections from Latin literature are offered with no notes or commentary, which I find unusual in a book where every grammatical concept is explained in such great detail. You won't find any insight into these texts at all here, even a brief description of the author, work, or context of the selection. If one truly wanted to use these 'sheets' along with the explanations, you'd be well-served by photocopying and enlarging them.
4) The length and weight (831 pages!) will surely prevent all but the most dedicated students or teachers from using this book except as a reference tool.

I am quite certain that Latin would come alive if one were to sit down with Reginaldus and have a conversation about the language, the Romans, and the literature. If I may offer my humble advice, I would therefore much rather see videotaped sessions with Reginaldus offered for purchase to better experience his approach and his love of the language. This book, however, comes across as a rather stale way to interact with Latin.

2.0 su 5 stelle Not very helpful 1 novembre 2016

Unless you already have sufficient mastery of Latin, this book is likely to just confuse you. Each chapter (or, as the book for some reason calls them, each "encounter") presents one or two basic Latin grammatical concepts, but then gives no advice on how to actually use the concept when doing translations. Each chapter just ends with "Now go read some real Latin" but, of course, you can't because there are never any examples to learn from.

it is a pity this book was so hastily slapped together (the authors admit in the Intro it is basically a transcription of Foster's lectures) since I have heard he is an amazing teacher in the classroom.

I agree with Nick "Me Paenite". I was hoping for lots of easier reading (extensive comprehensibe reading ), but instead the Latin readings provided (at least early on) are for you to go through and mark subject, or objects, adjectives, and verbs, they are way to hard to read for understanding early on. There is no vocabulary list, instead you look every word up in the dictionary. I guess you are creating your own vocabulary, but since the readings are unrelated, the vocabulary words are not necessarily repeated.
The explanations of grammar come from a different angle than most textboos, they are interesting but long and chatty.
Hopefully the second volume "Ossa Carnes Multae" "This companion volume is intended to provide from Cicero's letters specific examples that correspond to each of the 105 encounters in the book "Ossa Latinitas Sola" will be more useful for reading Latin.
In the mean time I will read "A First Latin Reader with Exercises" by Nutting and any other longer easy Latin readings (=extensive reading) I can find. Jacobulus

Finally! After numerous publication deadline delays my copy arrived last week and am now forty pages into this long anticipated work.
Having participated in an attempted spoken Latin group for several years with several folks who had actually studied with Reginald Foster
in Rome, I was very eager to see how this master teacher approached the subject and I am not disappointed.
If you have always wanted to learn Latin,and the sheer size and weight of this book doesn't scare the hell out of you, then Ossa Latinitatis Sola
will prove to be a worthwhile investment.
Having been a student of Latin off and on for over 50 years, I am always interested in new ways to learn it and Foster certainly is refreshing.
He has thrown out all the paradigms of declensions,conjugations , hic,haec,hoc, etc in favor of logical explanations of how a language works.
In one respect, this is great but for a total newbie, I am not so sure. The only supplementary study aid Foster recommends is a good Latin/English dictionary which he maintains one can ferret out meanings and usages of words not explained in the text.
With this lack of any "road map" the independent student is on his own. In spite of the authors' distaste of tables ( which have sometimes been overused in conventional teaching) I find they are useful for sorting out the various tenses,declensions, hics and hocs.
My suggestion to someone starting out with this book would be to obtain a copy of Robert Henle's Latin Grammar Latin Grammar (Henle Latin) which succinctly lays out all the tables that Foster abhors but makes his text more understandable as his explanations unfold.
My only other criticism is that Foster uses the British case system for nouns placing the Accusative (objective) ahead of the Genitive (possessive) which only confuses matters since the stem for all the case endings is derived from the Genitive. I always found this clumsy compared to standard American texts where the Genitive is learned right after the Nominative and the other cases flow from there.
Also,thank the gods that he didn't follow that dreadful modern Oxford tradition of using the letter "u" for the letter "v" as in "uir" for "vir" (man)

For this much anticipated new approach to studying Latin, one can only be thankful for these minor problems. The Latin chapter headings and grammatical terms and the wonderful and varied reading selections make this book a real treasure.
This is a work well worth waiting for and illuminating for discipuli Latinae at any stage.

1.0 su 5 stelle Father Reggie's magic cannot be captured 30 novembre 2016
Di J. FRY LOFTON - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have been studying Latin for several years without much success in reading this challenging language. I was hoping to move from painful, word-by-word translation to a more comfortable reading level in Latin. I know a number of people who have taken Fr. Foster’s course in Rome, and every one of them credits their seemingly effortless Latin ability to Fr. Foster. Hence, I was excited to see this book come out. Unfortunately, it is a huge disappointment. The fact that the lessons are called “experiences” and “encounters” tells you what you need to know—it wasn’t the experience or encounter with Latin, but with Fr. Foster himself that made his course so successful. I applaud the intentions of this attempt to bottle up some of Father’s magic, but sadly it just doesn’t work. The text consists of a number of lessons that are nothing more than standard grammar delivered with a more conversational writing style than your average textbook. There are readings provided, but they are in no way connected to the lessons, and appear in bunches throughout the book. They are totally free of notes or vocabulary, and consist of a random mix of prose and poetry, classical and ecclesiastical. You are merely told to go on your own and find any reading that illustrates the grammar, whether it’s in the textbook or somewhere else. Good luck with that. In fact, the entire structure of the book, grammar and readings, seems totally disorganized and haphazard. Very little is offered to explain how one should actually use such a book. As best I can discern, this book would only be useful for those who have taken Fr. Foster’s course and either (a) need a refresher or (b) intend to teach using his method. For anyone else, even an experienced Latin teacher (who has not worked with Father) this book will be a rather weighty collector of dust. For those of us who never had the time or money to travel to Rome and study with Father Foster, we can only regret that when Father moves on to become Heaven’s official Latinist, his method will pass away with him.
