'This book offers the reader a truly grand and overarching perspective on the Greek language, and there is simply nothing comparable to it in scope or coverage. We cannot, in any sense, call this a standard historical grammar, nor is it the best place to seek a straightforward linear narrative of the more narrowly linguistic changes; it is something much richer and more exciting than that.' Journal of Hellenic Studies
'… monumental work … vast treasure of knowledge and research … These chapters not only present relevant data but also carefully analyze the data with a critical awareness of the history of scholarly discussions. … Incomparable in scope and in its critical analysis of the vast amount of data, this volume is destined to become one of the most significant reference tools for students of the ancient Greek language and its cognate fields.' Bulletin for Biblical Research
