9781853996047: Greek Word Order (Bcp Advanced Language S)

The order of words in a Greek sentence is much freer and less predictable than in most European languages. The author explains and illustrates the principles which govern word order in Greek. He finds three: the tendency of certain words to take a constant position; certain types of logical relation between the sentence and its context; and the tendency to adhere to familiar patterns. His three main chapters discuss word order dictated by lexical or semantic, by syntactical, and by logical determinants.

Book Description:

K. J. Dover's book, based on the series of lectures he gave at the University of Cambridge in 1959, explains that although Greek appears to be indeterminate, there are certain conventions that are followed in its construction and he focuses on lexical, semantic, syntactical and 'logical' determinants. This is an insightful study for all classicists as well as those generally interested in languages.

About the Author:

Kenneth J. Dover is Professor Emeritus of Greek in the University of St. Andrews and former President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
