0 Reviews
A description of the phonology of modern Greek dialects from the point of view of their historical development in so far as this may be reconstructed from their modern form. An introductory chapter explains the basis of the approach adopted, and makes the book readily intelligible to the students of Greek with no special training in linguistics. Throughout the work the historical development of numerous sample words is presented in order to illustrate the rules.
