advice to intermediate students.  It's good advice.  And her page of help for students is here.)


Lingua Latina Vocabulary and Grammar drills:

General Grammar Review:

    o   Here is a nice little
verb use summary, done by a prof at Furman.  
    o   A
Participle summary stolen from the web is here.  It's a PDF.
    o   There is a brief
summary of Latin Grammar (including case uses and verb uses) here.  (Subjunctive uses are down at the bottom of the page.)
    o   A much
longer summary of Latin grammar (with charts as well as uses) is here.  If I were going to use this page, I would use my browser's "Search" or "Find" to locate the term for which I was hunting.
    o   At UNC-C there is an
alphabetical summary of Latin grammar.
Kristin Lord has the beginnings of a field guide to spotting different subjunctive uses in PDF here.  These are part of her notes for her Latin 102A class.
    o   Claude Pavur has a nice summary of
Subjunctive Forms.
Fantastic Subjunctive Summary from Greta Ham at Bucknell.  Sadly the pages are gone from the web, but I nabbed copies (note that the "homepage" links try to take you to Greta's defunct home page).


On-Line Dictionaries:

Past students have been fans of
Whitaker’s Words.  It is linked with other useful items over at Notre Dame.  Be sure to scroll down and see the list of endings! Here is a direct link to the site.

A much more powerful tool is at the Perseus Project:

Perseus Latin Lexicon Search -- mirrors:   Germany   Chicago
n.b. that if your word isn’t a headword in the dictionary, a link comes up allowing you to see possible inflections that would produce your word.  E.g., a search for "militum" won't bring up a dictionary entry, because this is a genitive plural, not a nominative singular.  However, there is a link that let's you find "possible dictionary forms of militum."  Clicking this link plugs your word "militum" into a thing called the "morphological search tool."  Here, the electronic numina will tell you every dictionary entry they think could produce the form "milites."  In this example you get exactly one dictionary headword, "miles ... a soldier."  To see that word's full dictionary entry, click on either the "Lewis & Short" link or the "Elem[entary] Lewis" link.

Try this with some ambiguous words like "portas" (either an acc. pl. noun or a 2nd sg. verb) or "quod" and look at all the information you'll get.

If you really like the
morphological search tool, you can go straight to it HERE.  The mirrors are here (in Germany) and here (in Chicago).

There is a whole
list of on-line Latin dictionaries at this site.

And here's a
single, huge file with a bunch of vocabulary on one page.  Save it as a file to your hard disk and search the file as the need arises.

For some modern Latin check out David Morgan's
lexical instrument at Furman, where he is a french professor.


Res Metrica:

There is a nice
summary of Latin scansion on a single web page here.

There is also an
eight-page pdf handout available here.
