This short piece is still in progress and hopefully isn’t too confusing.  There seems to be such a huge focus on the Grammar of Latin that often we forget that there’s a Syntax of Latin as well.  Grammar and Syntax are not the same.  Just memorizing the declensions and conjugations and knowing them does not mean that you can put all the words together in order to read or translate a passage of Latin.  It’s important to keep in mind how to put all these parts together so that you can naturally read a Latin sentence or paragraph.
