Resources for studying the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite)

  1. Here's my word-for-word, term-by-term translation of the Traditional Latin Mass, the so-called Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. A few observations:
    1. Like Rick Kephart's Interlinear Translation, this translation is meant to help people like me who are learning the Latin of the traditional Mass. It doesn't really add anything new; it's essentially a Latin student's translation exercise. Homework answers.
    2. Originally, I wanted to create sentence diagrams. But I haven't figured out how to do that efficiently. So, instead of sentence diagrams, I use colors to indicate case and sentence structure ( NOM, VOC, ACC, ABL, GEN, DAT, V, VT ).
    3. Also, along the same lines, my translation of each term includes the sense conveyed by the grammatical case. Hence, for example,

      I will go into to, toward, unto [unto] the high altar of God

    4. I'm using William Whitaker's WORDS to do most of the real work: analyze the grammar of each Latin term. A thousand thanks to him. Move your pointing device over the colorful Latin words to see grammatical information from William Whitaker's WORDS program.
