World News in Ancient Greek

Coderch, Classical Greek: A New Grammar

Dr. Juan Coderch, University of St. Andrews (Scotland) maintains a website that provides world news in Ancient Greek. The site provides thoughtful discussions of some of the difficulties faced in producing current news articles in an ancient language.

In 2012 Dr. Coderch published a new reference grammar for Classical Greek. Reviews of the book have been very positive. A reference grammar is not necessary for acquiring ancient Greek, but it’s a great help for resolving difficulties you encounter in advanced texts, including his own news articles.

You can download a copy of the grammar as a PDF file for free, but at nearly 400 pages it will probably cost you as much to print it yourself as it would to order the bound copy from Amazon.com.

What do you think? Other readers and I would love to hear from you.
