It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb
Written By: William W. Goodwin
Series Title: Cambridge Library Collection - Classics

New Edition

Note: Manufactured on demand: supplied direct from the printer

William W. Goodwin (1831–1912) was Eliot Professor of Greek at Harvard
from 1860 to 1901, and was the first director of the American School in
Athens. This, his most important book, was written for nineteenth-century
American students to make available to them the latest European
developments in the understanding of Greek syntax, as well as his own
original material. It went through several editions between 1860 and 1890, and
remains an invaluable resource for scholars of the Greek language. This is a
reissue of the 1867 edition, published in Cambridge Massachusetts by Sever
and Francis. It presents a detailed and well organized discussion of moods,
tenses, infinitive, participles and verbal adjectives. Goodwin includes a large
collection of examples taken from a wide range of major Greek writers to
illustrate every variety of each construction. An index of these examples is
also provided for easy reference.
