Many thanks. My only reference (Teach Yourself Latin
Grammar by Gregory Klyve) seems to be pretty
superficial and doesn't mention the future participle,
Second Periphrastic or Passive Periphrastic at all.


BTW: I was just browsing Amazon for a more
comprehensive grammar when I spotted Harry Potter,
Winnie the Pooh, and Dr. Seuss all in Latin!  What a
hoot!
