Fab 1500-Basic Latin Vocabulary Words to Know
A simple plan for learning/recognizing 83.6% of the vocabulary of three Latin anthologies. The Fab 1500 identifies the basic, and most common Latin vocabulary. Using a reproducible worksheet, an enterprising student will write out, translate, and memorize five words each day; reviewing/testing them every fifth day. Working consistently, in four semesters, this list of 1494 words will be known (and memorized if possible). The list starts with the 300 most frequently used Latin words followed by the remainder. Words are first listed in alphabetical (except for the initial 300) and then, with definitions, according to subject categories identified by Paul Bernard Diederich in 1939. Categories include: Gods, Time, Sky, Fire, Water, Earth, Plants, Food, Animals, People, Body, Mind, Feelings, Talk, Writing/Arts, Work/Play, City/Buildings, Military, Government, Social Approval, Evil, Death, Abstractions, and, lastly, Unclassified. 19 pgs, pb, top-bound, spiral binding, portrait orientation. ~ Janice
