Abstract:

"Greek: A Comprehensive Grammar of the Modern Language" has become
firmly established as the leading reference guide to modern Greek grammar.
With its detailed treatment of all grammatical structures, its analysis of the
complexities of the language and its particular attention to areas of confusion
and difficulty, it is the first truly comprehensive grammar of the language to
be produced. It provides a study of the real patterns of use in contemporary
Greek

This second edition continues to focus on the Greek spoken and written by
native speakers today. Taking account of recent changes to the Greek
language, this new edition features:

-Significantly expanded material on many areas, including syntax and
phonology

-A new chapter on derivational morphology and other word formation
processes including compounding and acronym formation

-Examples drawn from everyday spoken usage as well as official, journalistic
and online discourse, such as newspapers, blogs and discussion groups

-A significantly expanded index of English terms and Greek words and a
revised glossary of terms.

The Grammar will be an essential reference source for the adult learner and
user of Greek. It is ideal for independent study and for use in schools,
colleges, universities and adult classes, up to an advanced level.
