This study of the Greek language is divided into two parts. The first is an outline history of the language and the second is a comparative-historical account of the grammar. The chapters in the first part deal with the pre-history (Greek and Indo-European, and the Anatolian languages), the Linear B tablets, the Greek dialects, the literary languages in poetry and prose, and finally post-classical Greek. Part two offers a concise account of the historical phonology and morphology of Greek. The book is aimed at readers whose interest is literary, as well as those approaching Greek form a philological viewpoint. It includes a range of quotations from Greek authors.
