SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS OF THE VERB IN CLASSICAL GREEK: AN INTRODUCTION

SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS OF THE VERB IN CLASSICAL GREEK: AN INTRODUCTION

Author: RIJKSBARON, ALBERT
$30.00
More Info

The verb is, in any language, the motor of all communication: no verb, no action. In Greek, verb forms change not only with person, number, tense, and voice, but in four possible moods as well. Available now in a special reprint for the North American market, The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek is an incomparable resource to students and scholars charged with the considerable task of untangling the Greek language's many complexities. With clear, concise instruction, Albert Rijksbaron shows how the various verb forms contribute to the richness of the Greek literature as we know it, in this essential guide for both novices and experienced practitioners.

"[This study] belongs in the library of any Hellenist and any linguist interested in ancient Greek."--Classics Newsletter (Anzeiger für die Altertumswissenschaft)

"Every use is described with concision and clarity."--Kratylos

"The book offers an example of how the empirical thoroughness of traditional Classical scholarship can be brought into contact with general linguistic theory."--Language
