In this fourth part of his general work on syntax, published in 1879, BertholdDelbrück (1842-1922), the German scholar remembered for his contribution tothe study of the syntax in Indo-European languages (his three-volumeVergleichende Syntax der indogermanischen Sprachen is also reissued in thisseries), concentrates on the syntax of ancient Greek. His focus is deliberatelybroad as he seeks to engage classicists who are interested in linguistics or inhow the Greek language was actually used, rather than in highly specialisedcase studies. In twelve chapters, Delbrück guides the reader through thegender and case of nouns, and explains some features seen as peculiarities ofHomeric Greek which in fact demonstrate its kinship as an Indo-Europeanlanguage with the Vedic language of the Hindu scriptures. He also covers thetenses and moods of verbs, prepositions, pronouns and particles, and wordorder.
