This chapter discusses Institutiones grammaticae (Institutes of grammar) and Institutio de nomine pronomine verbo (Instruction on the Noun, Pronoun, and Verb), two handbooks written by Priscian of Caesarea, a professor of grammar in the Roman Empire, ca. 520. Institutiones grammaticae deals with vox (voice, sound), letters, and syllables. Priscian's discussion of all parts of speech is supplemented with Regulae-style morphological information. Institutio de nomine pronomine verbo, a beginners' textbook in medieval grammatical teaching, presents the morphology of the noun, pronoun, and verb in a systematic manner.

Keywords:   grammar, Institutiones grammaticae, Priscian, letters, syllables, parts of speech, noun, pronoun, verb
