Part of the Advanced Language Series, this is a revised edition of The Greek Dialects published by Chicago
University Press in 1955. Its virtues were comparative
clarity and conciseness on a subject too often treated, for example by
contemporary work in German, with prolixity and obscurity. It became
the standard scholarly introduction and reference work on questions of
dialect; and though much valuable additional work has been done on the
subject since its appearance, it largely retains its original virtues
and still provides a valuable starting point of reference.
Latin Language (and associated areas) which have been unavailable for

paperback format. They are intended for the reference shelves of all
scholars and students of classical languages.
For seminary students, the goal of studying Greek grammar is the accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Sound exegesis requires that the exegete consider grammar within a larger framework that includes context, lexeme, and other linguistic features.While the trend of some grammarians has been to take a purely grammatical approach to the language, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students. It is the first textbook to systematically link syntax and exegesis of the New Testament for second-year Greek students. It explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which have not previously been dealt with in print.Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics is the most up-to-date Greek grammar available. It equips intermediate Greek students with the skills they need to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning. The expanded edition contains a subject index, a Greek word index, and page numbers in the Syntax Summary section.

The extensive commentary gives assistance with matters of dialect and language, Homeric and Hesiodic comparisons, interpretation, content and metre.
