A Handbook of Latin Homonyms free pdf Excerpt from A Handbook of Latin Homonyms: Comprising the Homonyms of Caesar, Nepos, Sallust, Cicero, Virgil, Horace, Terence, Tacitus, and Livy This handbook is intended to perform the same service for Latin that some books on homonyms already do for several modern languages, notably French. The homonyms are arranged in an alphabetical list. Care has been taken not to enter in it any group of homonyms whose actual use by the authors mentioned on the title page could not be proved. The many references that the list contains are inserted as evidence in support of this actual usage. In such an uninflectional language as English, a list of homonyms collected by looking over the leading words in a dictionary would not be altogether incomplete. This is because English case-forms are mostly alike, and because several of the persons of the English verb are identical in form. On this account a list of homonyms, such as that contained in Professor Skeats Etymological Dictionary, is tolerably exhaustive, although taking into account only the nominative singular of nouns and the infinitive form of verbs. Yet there are many words such as feed, dove, stove, rung, cooler, lives, leaves, and does which are of quite common occurrence, but which would escape notice as words of double meaning if looked for under the form in which they are usually given in English dictionaries. This is still more the case in a highly inflected language like Latin. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
