circumflex accent ( ˆ ) is used to denote the length of the vowels.
Latin is an inflected language.
It means that the grammatical relations
between the words are shown by changes in their forms.
Most often the inflectional changes
take place in the termination of the word:
The inflectional changes may occur also
in the body of the word or at its beginning:
amôre for love;
amo I love,
amas you love, amâvi
loved, amavisti you loved.
vanquish : vîci I vanquished;
cano I sing
: cecini I sang.
