Are you learning Koine Greek, the Greek of the New Testament and most other post-classical Greek texts? Whatever your level, use this forum to discuss all things Koine, Biblical or otherwise, including grammar, textbook talk, difficult passages, and more.
This is my second post, and I am wondering (being a bit over halfway through Duff's lessons, and in need of more!) if there are any recent etymological studies on where Koine or Classical Greek in general has come from. I found a book from the late 1800s in the Ridley College (Melbourne, Australia) library, but it is dry and hard to get into, written as it is with older English. It also deals with Latin roots and etymology and that's a bit outside my current scope (maybe later!).

Well, I don't think it's quite what you're after, but there's "Greek : a history of the language and its speakers" by Horrocks and "The Greek language" by Palmer which are pretty good and have a lot about how Greek developed.
