9781330531549: A Syntax of Attic Greek (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Syntax of Attic Greek

Some explanation, perhaps apology, is necessary for publishing a new Greek Syntax, when so many similar books by really great Greek scholars are in use. My object has been to write a Greek Syntax arranged on the analytical method, i.e. by sentences, simple and compound; to attempt for Greek what Dr. Kennedy's invaluable Grammars have done for Latin. Dr. Donaldson's once well-known Greek Grammars are so arranged: they are the works of a very able man and a ripe scholar, but no one would now accept the local theory of the Cases, or the treatment of Conditionals as set forth in them.

I may perhaps be allowed to explain how I came to write this Syntax, and the plan adopted in it, as the book, such as it is, is not a mere compilation from other Grammars. I have for many years been in the habit of jotting down marginal references to constructions. When three years ago it was suggested to me that I should draw up a Greek Syntax, I began by writing out these examples, under their different headings. I thus had an outline of rules with many hundred examples, an outline which has not been materially departed from. I then read or re-read several books bearing on the subject.
