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: Comparative Graeco-Latin Sentence Syntax in view of the European Context
Written By: Antonín Bartoněk
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Indo-European Linguistics 37

In spite of many studies dealing with the individual Greek and Latin
syntactical topics, a systematic comparative Graeco-Latin sentence syntax
has remained without any global analysis so far. That is why the author
started research into this area several years ago, aiming at a comparative
analysis of the Greek and Latin dependent clauses, i.e. i) the
subject/object clauses, ii) the adverbial clauses, and iii) the relative
clauses, including their nominal equivalents such as infinitives,
participles (L/G), as well as gerundia, gerundiva and supina I/II (L).

At the same time, he was dealing with a number of modern European
languages, both Romance and Germanic, in comparison with Latin and its
tradition, and the Slavonic languages predominantly in comparison with
Ancient Greek (and Old Church Slavonic). The „didactic“ background of this
activity was reflected in more than 550 selected sentences (ca. 300 Greek,
some 260 in Latin) for practical language drill. – In 2008, A. Bartoněk
published his Czech version of the present Comparative Syntax, dealing with
all the above-said constructions, while analysing also the problems of both
the deontic and epistemic sentence modality.
