Coming from knowing some ancient Greek, Latin wasn't easy and I more or less started guessing at what the exact meanings were.
Greek has case endings for nouns and so forth in the articles....a lot of the time, there is an article in front of the nouns which gives proper ID of noun's function in a sentence.
I found a couple of free computer programs that sorted it out....sort of....
No articles in Latin.
Anyway, I have about forgot what I knew about both of them.
