This handbook contains a classified list, with English equivalents, of 1500 words in common use among classical Greek historians, orators and philosophers. One hundred of these are dealt with at greater length in a supplement, which also focuses on a number of crucial idioms. The aim of the book is that learners drilled in these words over the course of a semester or two should find that they can read the texts of such authors as Thucydides, Plato and Demosthenes with a high degree of fluency. An alphabetical index is provided.
