Greek Grammar

Front Cover
Sponsored by the Department of Classics of Harvard University, a revised edition of the late Professor Smyth's A Greek Grammar for Colleges is now available. All necessary corrections have been made, and the book retains the form which has long made it the most complete and valuable work of its kind. In this descriptive grammar the author offers a treatment of Greek syntax which is exceptionally rich as well subtle and varied.

50 years ago I was a freshman at St. John's College where we relied on Smyth's Greek Grammar. Our tutor in that class was Mr. Richard Schofield, a former Rhodes Scholar. Our class intro text was by Chase & Phillips , but we were soon into Homer & Plato, Smyth was & is the master reference. His Greek language chart I redid with more modern English examples to share with others. EVERY EDUCATED PERSON SHOULD KNOW THE GREEK ALPHABET. Years ago there was a news photo of tunnel just found in Jerusalem. Over its entrance someone about 3,000 years ago had scrawled Delta upsilon delta. or pyramid u pyramid, or, without vowels = David - that was King to be David's tunnel into Jerusalem, just as told in Samuel.
