'I have taken my time over reviewing this title simply because I found it so fascinating that I kept being sidetracked into other languages … One thing that any broad-ranging reference book compiled to rigorously applied standard criteria does is to put the familiar into a new perspective: so the chapters on Latin and Greek treat those two 'major''languages in the same way as the others and allow, in fact encourage, genuinely comparative study … the level of detail given in this handbook will satisfy many requirements … academic in the best sense.'
