Artes Latinae DVD-ROM Format

Students can learn an ancient language via modern technology through Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers' DVD/CD-ROM version 2.0 of Artes Latinae. Designed by Dr. Jeffrey Lyon, based on Dr. Waldo Sweet's original, the DVD/CD-ROM version incorporates text, graphics and sound into a computer accessible format. At the click of an icon, students can choose one of three pronunciations: Dr. Robert Sonkowsky and Dr. Barbara Sonkowsky using the Restored Classical; Nancy Llewellyn and Dr. Clarence Miller using the Continental/Ecclesiastical; or Dr. Waldo Sweet's original American Scholastic version:

  • Restored Classical - The most current evidence points to the Restored Classical pronunciation as the most accurate sound of classical Latin. This pronunciation is distinguished by the nasalization of a word's final vowel when it is followed by 'm.'
  • Continental/Ecclesiastical - This pronunciation is commonly encountered in liturgy, music lyrics, and Christian, Medieval and Neo-Latin texts.
  • American Scholastic - a classical pronunciation. Waldo E. Sweet's original cassette recordings have been digitized for the CD-ROM format. this is the default pronunciation for Artes Latinae.

Each DVD/CD-ROM package includes a manual, a reference notebook, a unit test booklet, a guide to the unit tests, a graded reader and the manual for the graded reader. All components of the CD-ROM package can also be purchased individually. The DVD/CD-ROM disk replaces the student textbooks and the cassettes of the traditional format.
