"The stated goal of this welcome new survey is to overcome some of the shortcomings of L. R. Palmer's classic handbook The Latin Language , unrevised since its publication in 1954. The goal is worthy, and the execution is in many ways a success." ( Bryn Mawr Classical Review , March 2009) "Clackson and Horrocks have produced a wide-ranging, theoretically sophisticated, and still thoroughly manageable book that will not easily be superseded." ( New England Classical Journal , February 2009) "James Clackson and Geoffrey Horrocks have ... Succeeded admirably in their aim, presenting a mass of data within persuasive narrative." ( Times Literary Supplement , December 2008) "The...hefty Blackwell History of the Latin Language...The authors focus on the evolution of the sounds, vocabulary, word and sentence structure...over the centuries." ( Chicago Tribune ) "[The authors] set the tone ... with an honesty that is ... appreciated ... .Marvelous treatment of ... understudied languages ... .Carefully, admirably, proofread ... .Recommended."
