Plautus’ Latin was much admired by Cicero and represents the "Shakespearean" stage of the language, before the great wealth of idiomatic expressions was replaced by the more formalized style of the classical period. Indeed, a study of Plautine syntax will do much to elucidate the nuances of later writers. Of course, he is an author to be savored in his own right and, even in verse, he captures the all vigor and vitality of the living language as spoken by the ordinary people of Rome. Lindsay’s summary of Plautine syntax is presented in handy form: colloquialisms, cases, adjective, pronoun, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection each receive systematic treatment. This is a superb resource, not only for anyone wishing to enjoy the plays of Plautus, but also for all lovers of the Latin language.
