After the Roman conquest of Greece in the mid-2nd century BC, Roman scholars learned of the Greek work, and they began to apply the same analysis to their own language, Latin.

The Graeco-Latin tradition was ultimate ly synthesized in th e work of th e most influential Roman grammarian, Priscian, who wrote in the 6th century AD. Priscian 's description of Latin is still what we find in most school textbooks of Latin today.
