Foundations of Ancient Greek: History, Morphology, Semantics, Syntax, Stylistics


This course takes students through a graduate-level review of common features of ancient Greek. Emphasis will be on developing firm command of vocabulary, syntax, and certain aspects of the history of the language, while also developing an appreciation for elements of stylistics and fluency in reading at sight. Typical components of the course might include elements of historical linguistics, insofar as they illuminate and help with the command of morphology and semantics; practice in composition or similar exercises that nurture firm command of syntax; close reading of texts with a view to elucidation of stylistics; practice in reading at sight.
