ORBIS SENSUALIUM PICTUS
As I cannot work on Latinum at the moment, due to my recent septum operation, and further, due to being in post -operative quarantine -housebound but not bedbound - I have ****lots***** of time on my hands.
I have started to add the very useful work of Comenius ORBIS SENSUALIUM PICTUS
to the Imaginum Vocabularium, using the original woodcuts from the 1810 edition. This work ties the vocab that has been covered in the photographic part of the blog in short sentences, making it much more likely that the words studied in the photographic part of the imaginum vocabularium will be internalised, while teaching basic grammar along the way.
The woodcuts by themselves are delightful, but they are not clear enough to stand alone. However, if the vocabulary is first studied in the earlier part of the site, the utility of the woodcuts becomes evident for consolidation. Time wise this is much faster than the previous part of the site, as I do not have to search the internet for an image for every word.
Once again, no English is used in this text, making it accessible internationally.
I have also colour coded the words of the text themselves,where this has some utility, as an aide memoire.
