 The study of classical languages by earlier generations of English-speaking students was greatly facilitated by the study of English grammar in the schools, a tradition now out of favor but one that emphasized precisely the concepts, terms, and constructions needed for the study of Greek and Latin.

Recent classical language textbooks, while presuming little or no grammatical sophistication on the part of their students, often provide little more by way of remediation than definitions of grammatical terminology.

A Student Handbook of Greek and English Grammar offers a student-friendly comparative exposition of English and ancient Greek grammatical principles that will prove a valuable supplement to a wide range of beginning Greek textbooks as well as a handy reference for those continuing on to upper-level courses.

Reviews:

". . . oriented toward teaching the basic concepts of Greek grammar (concepts, not the grammar itself) and at the same time exemplifying each concept with both English and Greek examples written side by side. . . . the presentation of the concept of 'subjunctive' is really excellent, with very good examples of what remains of it in English. Also the concept of 'aspect,' with all the implications that it will have for infinitives and imperatives, is brilliantly presented, as all of us know that one of our main problems is making students differentiate between aspect and tense. This presentation makes the difference clear. . . . students will no doubt benefit from this excellent book."    —Juan Coderch, University of St. Andrews, in Digressus
