Irene, Mackridge, Peter, Holton, David. Published by Routledge, 1997. ISBN 10: 0415100011, ISBN 13: 9780415100014. Throughout, the emphasis is on the Greek spoken and written by native speakers today.

So, this book is definitely broad and comprehensive, but also rather careless and clunky at times

Apr 22, 2012 Paula C rated it it was amazing. So, this book is definitely broad and comprehensive, but also rather careless and clunky at times. It gets an A (maybe even an A+) for coverage, but only a C (at best) for readability. In addition, I would not recommend it as the sole book for someone learning Greek; but as a supplement and reference, it could be indispensable.

I have tried multiple texts to learn greek (Papaloizos v7 and 8, Dartmouth's MOdern Greek, and various other texts on Amazon, but have been frustrated by the extremely sparse explanations of grammar and how to put a sentence together. This grammar book is exactly what all the texts have been missing. As others have said, theres a lot of linguistic jargon, but the explanations are very clear, thorough and helpful. Its easy to skip the jargon and go back to it when you're ready for it. Its organized very well, starting with Part 1, extensive explanation of pronunciation, then on to the writing system, then Part 2- parts of speech and Part 3 how to form sentences, A chapter on verb phrases, 115 page chapter on noun phrases, another on adverb phrases and last on prepositional phrases . I especially appreciate the 40 page chapter on suffixes and prefixes to vastly expand your vocabulary, in Part 2. There are many clear examples, all of which are translated. Its an excellent book and im so glad to have finally found a goid comprehensive one.

The most comprehensive treatment of modern Greek grammar in English. This is a sound scholarly work. You can find discussion of every aspect of Modern Greek. The layout is rather classical: starting from morphology then syntax, just as any old classical language grammar will do. Patience will guide you through the careful, sometimes hair-splitting descriptions of declension patterns. The connection with Katharevousa, or the "learned language", is often stressed by the authors, sometimes to the chagrin of a bad ancient Greek student. The disadvantage of the book may be its extensive usage of philological and linguistic terminologies, e.g. oxytone, parasyllabic, etc. For ordinary learners that have little or no interest in the history of the language, I recommend Holton's Essential Greek Grammar, available also from Routledge.

This is the grammar book to buy if you are serious about learning and using Greek. It is well written, well organized, and well printed. It is very easy to read and use initially to learn the rules and to use as a reference later when you just need one piece of information. Our entire class at the Defense Language Institute replaced our text with this book.

I've only begun making my way through this grammar. But judging from a cursory review (not to mention everything I've read about it), it's superb. With apologies to the author(s) for 1-starring my review, I do so by way of caveat emptor to anyone who may be thinking of buying a hard copy: the one I received was almost certainly printed on demand. The quality is sub-par for a reference that will see great use, and for the very high cost of purchase. I'll be keeping my copy since the grammar itself is excellent, and because it's not clear to me there's any alternative, if one wishes to own the second edition, to purchasing it in this format. But I'm not expecting my copy to hold up well in the long run. Amazon and/or Routledge should make it clear, in their advertising, precisely what a buyer is getting. By all means, purchase this book if what you need is a comprehensive grammar of Modern Greek. You wouldn't do much worse, though, by photocopying whatever passages you need at a library and sticking them in a binder.
This grammar really contains EVERYTHING! Very practically planned and easy to read, easy to find what you are looking for. Highly recommended!
