Simpson has produced a book typographically easy to consult, combining elegance with utility. This edition incorporates English idioms and Latin spelling, includes general classical information where appropriate, shows long and short vowels where not immediately apparent, indicates irregular plural forms, cites and quotes ancient classical authors, and suggests paraphrases to express modern English in classical Latin form.
