Fo. ) And, he argues, it is no worse for a scholar to learn a ' p i e c e ' or clause t h a n it is for him to learn a many-syllabled Latin word. Webbe's a t t e m p t t o teach his pupils by means of collocations of words rather t h a n b y paradigms led, however, to a further linguistic problem analogous to t h a t of immediate constituents. Brookes questioned, quite legitimately, how Webbe was to decide w h a t were the constituents of a sentence which were to be learnt as (21) PROBLEMS OF LANGUAGE-TEACHING 11 wholes, and indeed, w h a t Webbe m e a n t by a clause.
Webbe was very strongly influenced by a scholar writing a hundred years previously who held theories on the teaching of Latin which were very similar to those of Comenius, b u t of whose work modern scholars seem ignorant. This was Georgius Haloinus Cominius, whose writings on Latin grammar are summarized in An Appeale b u t are not otherwise extant. Of the life of this perhaps unique disciple of Cominius the DNB gives only a brief a c c o u n t ; he was writing between 1612 and 1626, published his first work, on astrology and medicine, in Rome in 1612, was living and teaching in the Old Bailey in 1623, and is said to have published his last work in 1626, though in fact it was in 1629.
The trouble with Webbe's system, he says, is t h a t learners never know w h a t t y p e of clause t h e y have to deal with. H e examines in detail one of the sentences claused b y Webbe in his edition of Cicero Ad Atticum: Petitionis nostrae quam tibi summae curae esse scio, hujus modi ratio est. g. nihil iam dicam; b u t this would prove false Latin, since de petitione nostra would be required in this collocation. Webbe sees t h e validity of his argument and agrees t h a t it is ' uery materiall in our course, a n d therefore I am glad t h a t Mr Brooke h a t h made his objections' (fo.
