The Latin Two course introduces students to the more complex patterns and constructions found in Latin. Examples of such points of advanced grammar are verbs in the passive voice, participial phrases, accusative-infinitive statement, and uses of verbs in the subjunctive mood. In addition to grammar students will build their vocabulary and study patterns of word formation in Latin. As part of this course students will also study especially significant phases in the evolution of the Roman state.
