Latin was the language spoken and spread by the ancient Romans from the III century B.C. Although the Roman Empire ‘fell’ around the IV century A.D., the Latin language was able to survive thanks to the rise and spread of the Christian Church thus becoming the Lingua Franca of European academia for almost a millennium. For centuries Latin has been taught in universities and schools in Europe not only as a means for expressing and articulating scientific knowledge, but also as a means for understanding the roots of Western Civilisation. LAN102 is the continuation of LAN101 and will continue instructing students on the morphology of the Latin language.
Successful completion of this unit will enable students to:
a) Demonstrate an understanding of the problems (i.e. pronunciation) connected with the study of ancient languages.
b) Demonstrate an understanding of the morphology and the syntax of the Latin language.
c) Demonstrate to have acquired a satisfactory amount of the Latin lexicon.
d) Demonstrate to have acquired proficiency in Latin composition.
e) Demonstrate to be able to translate morphologically complex texts from Latin into English.
f) Demonstrate an understanding of the relation between the morphology, syntax and lexicon of the Latin and the English languages.
