Prometheus wrote:Can someone suggest a good recent work on ancient Greek grammar, preferably one intended for a linguist audience?
If you want a grammar, there is no such thing. At least not in English. It is a tragedy of the current state of classics that most of our reference tools are antiques.
For a linguistic and historical perspective on Greek, Geoffrey Horrocks' Greek: A History of the Language and Its Speakers
is a great book. A second edition — 200 pages longer than the first, apparently — will be out in a few months (Feb 2010 in the US).
