Abstract:

In Vox Latina and Vox Graeca Professor Allen was concerned primarily with
the pronunciation of the individual vowels and consonants of classical
Latin and Greek. In this major work he analyses in depth and in detail all
the prosodic features of these languages: length of vowels and quantity of
syllables, accent, pitch, stress and 'rhythm', with special attention to
their manifestations in verse. The description and explanation of such
features raise theoretical problems of very general importance and
Professor Allen devotes the first part of the book to the establishment of
the phonetic principles required as a frame of reference for the specific
discussions of Latin and Greek. Parallels are cited from a number of other
languages, including English. This is a book of permanent importance for
students of classical languages and literatures and also for metricians,
phoneticians and general linguists.
