POSITION OF WORDS
THE great mystery of the position of words in the Latin tongue lics principally in these two points, viz.
1. That the word governed be placed before the word which
2. That the word agreeing be placed after the word with which it agrees.
These two may be termed the maxims of position; and from them result various rules, which may be conveniently divided into two classes, viz.
1. Rules resulting from the government of words.
2. Rules resulting from the agreement of words.
To which add a third class, viz.
3. Miscellanecus rules, not reducible to either of the two classes foregoing.
* The following Rules are from Lyne's Latin Primer.
