Excerpt from The History of Rome: The Third Decade, Part the First

Here it may be necessary to explain, that while, on the one hand, the wide differences of idiom and construction render it impossible that any word-for-word translation from an ancient language into English, or, in fact, from any language into another, can have the ease of original com position, or form grammatical sentences, or be at all intel ligible - for a faithful translation can only result from the use of equivalent phrases - still, on the other hand, such word-for-word translation is a highly indispensable discipline for the oral teacher to enforce upon beginners as a test of grammatical knowledge. The difference, in short, is that between translation, properly so called, and parsing.
