This chapter deals with glosses on Priscian written by Remigius, a teacher at Auxerre, and his followers around the ninth and tenth centuries. Remigius (ca. 841–908) was an active grammarian and biblical commentator who often put his knowledge of grammar and pagan authors in the service of theology. His work is known for its pedagogical focus in approaching grammar. One of his commentaries focuses on the short treatise De nomine pronomine verbo (On the Noun, Pronoun and Verb), a practical beginners' grammar intended as a resource for teaching morphology. In his commentary, Remigius insists that the order of the declensions is in principle based on the order of the Latin vowels. He also discusses logic and syntax.

Keywords:   logic, glosses, Priscian, Remigius, grammar, De nomine pronomine verbo, morphology, declensions, Latin vowels, syntax
