After fumbling through a few words and mistaking a verb for a noun, I finished the first sentence.
I skimmed the second line, looking for the main verb. I searched for a singular noun and pieced the two together.
I study Latin for its rewarding return, incredible precision, intellectual challenge, rich history and culture, and deep influence on our world.
I study Latin to show others how beautiful it is, to encourage the world that it should be valued.Then, I noticed an accusative and added it as a direct object.As I continued, a burst of exhilaration shot through my body.I feel that same suspense and unknown when I translate, because I am beautifully struggling to unlock a past I know very little of. Thus, I question why others consider Latin a dead language. The Romance languages of French, Spanish, and Italian all have Latin origins.Without Latin, I would not be able to write this essay!

Next, I look for phrases that connect the entire clause — does this adjective match this noun? The middle of the sentence is the trickiest, full of convoluted dependent clauses, pieces colored ambiguously and with curves and edges on all four sides.I am sometimes tangled in the syntax, one of the worst feelings in the world.After analyzing every word, I try to rearrange the pieces so they fit together.
