The series of anthologies, also published by Bloomsbury, containing the set texts with accompanying notes and commentaries, is of limited usefulness too in this respect, especially as far as answering the types of questions that will be set on the prescribed texts is concerned. He is the author of City in Common: Culture and Community in Buenos Aires (SUNY, 2016), and the co-editor of Comics and Memory in Latin America (Pittsburgh University Press, 2017; also available in Spanish as Cómics y memoria en América Latina (Cátedra, 2019)) and Cultures of Anti-Racism in Latin America (ILAS, 2019). To conclude, as I have said, the fact that the book does not have any obvious or natural competitor will in itself ensure healthy sales, if mainly in those parts of the UK and the rest of the world that use the OCR specifications. P. xii: Elision is defined as the “process by which the final vowel or syllable of a word is in effect knocked off”: in fact it is only the vowel which is knocked off (together with nasalizing m) leaving any preceding consonant intact. urges “close attention to detail in getting the form and ending of every word correct” and recommends the looking up and rechecking of every word except the most common.

Again as with Latin To GCSE, there is no assistance given with how to answer the types of questions that will be set in the language papers of the exams, except for translation into Latin, which very few candidates attempt. Unfamiliar words are again glossed; since there is no official OCR vocabulary list for A2, the criterion now for glossing is that the word does not appear in the vocabulary list in the back of the book. We ask that comments be substantive in content and civil in tone and those that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be published.e. not (directly) to the literature requirements as well, therefore to half of the examinations only. The Used, Rental and eBook copies of this book are not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. It indicates purpose or fitness (the latter was perhaps its original meaning) in certain uses of gerundival attraction, e. The next section introduces the translation and scansion of verse, and includes passages for unseen translation and comprehension at A2 standard in both prose and verse. An interesting feature here is that in the “lightly adapted” passages the Latin text is preceded by an English translation of the immediately previous lines to give students a clear idea of the context.

The account of the tenses of the subjunctive used in indirect questions and their correlation with tenses of the indicative in the direct questions is unclear, incomplete and in places incorrect. Each point is carefully explained and followed by five Latin sentences to be translated into English and five English sentences to be put into Latin (except at the very end, where remote/closed conditions in indirect statement are evidently judged too difficult for the latter exercise). Latin Beyond GCSE" covers all the linguistic requirements for the OCR AS-level in Latin, and the grammar for A2. The passages are all well chosen for their interest, as are most of the other passages in the book; the difficulty of choosing passages (especially unseens) that combine interest with an appropriate level of linguistic difficulty should not be underestimated.The prescribed list of accidence and syntax is in fact the same at both levels, though A2 “requires understanding of more complex structures”. There is no evidence that this was its basic or original function; in fact there is evidence to the contrary. John Taylor was for many years Head of Classics at Tonbridge School, UK, and now teaches Classics at Manchester University, UK. The standardisation of the language that resulted in Classical Latin covered a period of some 300 years. With regard to the pronunciation of vowels, it is interesting that the book does not contain a single macron, even though introductory text books now mark long vowels as a matter of course.
