LESSON XII

Have the words assigned for declension at the end of § 89 declined both orally and at the board. Point out the fact that words in -ius and -ium are declined exactly like words in -us and -um except for the genitive and vocative singular.

In § 90.II we have the first selection of connected reading. Take special pains with the pronunciation and try to secure effective reading. Have the class review § 17.

LESSON XIII

When taking up this Lesson refer the class to § 71, and show that the nouns in -us and -um being disposed of, those ending in -er and -ir remain to be discussed. Emphasize the fact mentioned in § 92.b.

To the words assigned for declension in § 94 add servus pulcher and equus aeger (sick) to afford drill on a -us noun with an -er adjective.

Use blank schemes of the complete adjective and of adjective with noun for thorough drill on the whole subject of first- and second- declension nouns and adjectives.

When selection § 95 is read, the introductory map of Italy should be used for reference.

When the dialogue § 96 is read, have the pupils find in the picture the offensive and defensive weapons of the legionary.

LESSON XIV

The table of possessives in § 98 should be memorized. § 98.a is exceedingly important and will need careful explanation and full illustration.

In the vocabulary, p. 286, be sure that magister is accented on the penult.

§ 99.I.2. Est = there is. 4. Note the emphasis on tua as shown by its position. 7. Tua is emphatic. 8. Mea is emphatic. 11. Translate, Our camp is yours. 12. Cf. 2.

§ 99.II.6. The camp is = castra sunt, because in Latin castra is plural
