Colebourn's Latin Sentence and Idiom: A Composition Course is a classic textbook for the intermediate and advanced student of Latin. Unfolding the logical, rational basis of the language, the structure of the book is planned to help the student learn to read and write Latin as fluently as possible. Grammatical constructions are carefully introduced, with clear but thorough explanations throughout and are complemented by regular exercises. Chapter summaries recap the chief grammatical constructions and revision exercises at frequent intervals help reinforce the student's learning. The book includes sixty passages of prose composition, graded in difficulty, length and vocabulary, and arranged in two series according to complexity. The passages are preceded by advice on prose-writing and alternate passages are fully annotated with aids and references.

This volume brings together a number of papers by Vivian Salmon, previously published in various journals and collections that are unfamiliar, and perhaps even inaccessible, to historians of the study of language. The central theme of the volume is the study of language in England in the 17th century. Papers in the first section treat aspects of the history of language teaching. The second section consists of three articles on the history of grammatical theory. The papers in the third and final section deal with the search for the universal language .

This study provides an entirely new look at an era of radical change in the history of West European thought, the period between 1480 and 1540, mainly in France and Germany. The book's main thesis is that the Latin language turn was not only concurrent with other aspects of change, but was a fundamental instrument in reconfiguring horizons of thought, reformulating paradigms of argument, and rearticulating the relationship between fiction and truth.
