Excerpt from The Poems of Ovid: Selections

Special attention is called to the selections for rapid or sight reading and the carefully prepared word groups. It is earnestly hoped that here at least the pupil will work out the meaning in the Latin word order before resorting to translation. Translation is difficult, reading comparatively easy, and the art of reading Latin in the word-order of the Romans once acquired will be a never-failing pleasure throughout life. TO this end, constant use should be made of the word-groups. The root and meaning at the head of each group should be firmly fixed in the memory when first consulted, and later reference thereto should be rather for the association of words. A little slowness here and an earnest effort to master the groups will smooth the way for a more rapid and pleasant advance in the future. It is surprising how quickly one's vocabulary increases and how much more rapid and accurate is one's progress when the root-words of a language are at one's command.
