9780199668113: Lily's Grammar of Latin in English: An Introduction of the Eyght Partes of Speche, and the Construction of the Same

The book makes available the earliest surviving text in English of the sixteenth-century Latin grammar generally attributed to William Lily (c.1468 - c.1523), the grammarian, scholar, and first headmaster of St Paul's School. The compilation became, by royal acclamation, the first and only authorized text for the teaching of Latin in grammar schools and remained so until ousted by Kennedy's primer in the first half of the nineteenth century. During this period it had a profound influence not only on the study and teaching of Latin, but on the understanding of grammar and language more generally. Subsequent grammatical treatises in English were influenced by it in shaping grammatical rules and terms, and so too were methods of language teaching.

The 1542 version is presented here by Hedwig Gwosdek in a scrupulously and helpfully prepared edition. Dr Gwosdek has prefaced it with chapters on the text's grammatical and pedagogical origins, composition, and subsequent history. She also includes a text on accidence and construction which mainly emerged from the tradition of the English grammatical manuscripts and the early printed grammars.

This fascinating work will interest scholars and advanced students of the English Renaissance as well as those interested in the histories of English linguistics, education, and early modern English.

About the Author:


William Lily

Hedwig Gwosdek is Associate Professor of English at the University of Bonn. She has written articles on early printed Latin grammars and grammatical manuscripts in English. Her books include Early Printed Editions of the Long Accidence and Short Accidence Grammars. Anglistische Forschungen 213 (Heidelberg: Winter, 1991) and A Checklist of English Grammatical Manuscripts and Early Printed Grammars, c. 1400-1540. The Henry Sweet Society Studies in the History of Linguistics 6 (Munster: Nodus Publikationen, 2000).

Review:


"... [O]ne of the best qualities of the volume is its ability to combine expertise from discipline areas that are traditionally far apart, such as Anglican studies and classic philology. For this reason the volume, expertly curated and scrupulously documented, will be welcomed favorably by a large academic audience, not only those interested in Renaissance English, but more generally in the story of linguistics, education, and classical studies." --Lingue antiche e moderne (*review has been translated into English from its original Italian)
