View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

In this book, the first full-scale work of its kind in English, Harm Pinkster applies contemporary linguistic theories and the findings of traditional grammar to the study of Latin syntax. He takes a non-technical and principally descriptive approach, based on literary and non-literary texts dating from c.250 BC to c.450 AD. The book contains a wealth of examples to illustrate the grammatical phenomena under discussion, many of them from the works of Plautus and Cicero, alongside extensive references to other sources of examples such as the Oxford Latin Dictionary and the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae.

This first volume focuses on the simple clause. It begins with an introduction to the sources used and to the approaches and conventions adopted, followed by a description of the basic grammatical concepts. Further chapters offer a thorough account of the features of the Latin simple clause, including verb frames, active vs passive mood, sentence type, negation, and the noun phrase, among many others.

Harm Pinkster, Emeritus Professor of Latin, University of Amsterdam

Harm Pinkster is Emeritus Professor of Latin at the University of Amsterdam. He has held visiting professorships at the universities of Bologna, Aix-en-Provence, Penn State, Pavia, Venice, Oxford, and Chicago and is a member of both the Academia Europaea and the British Academy. He is the author of On Latin Adverbs (North-Holland, 1972; reprinted by Amsterdam University Press, 2005), Latin Linguistics and Linguistic Theory (John Benjamins, 1983), and Latin Syntax and Semantics (Routledge, 1990).

Review:


"Any serious student of Latin will want to become acquainted with this book. One looks forward to the second volume." --Classical World


"[Oxford Latin Syntax] will undoubtedly and deservedly be a source of pleasure and pride for Latinists for years to come." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"[Pinkster's] book is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in Latin linguistics" --Language and Literature


"This book will become the point of reference for the next century of Latin scholarship... For those who think that we already knew enough about Latin grammar, think again. This work is the culmination of decades of research on Latin, enriched by the discovery and publication of new texts and a century's advances in linguistics." --James Clackson, Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"The Oxford Latin Syntax is an essential new reference for researchers in Latin linguistics, classicists, and university students. Non-specialists are introduced to ideas in theoretical linguistics and to the relevant terminology [and] technical concepts such as autocausative, counterfactual, and negator climbing can be easily understood by those outside the field thanks to the numerous examples with translations and notes." -- Chiara Fedriani, Incontri Linguistici
