The verb is, in any language, the motor of all communication: no verb, no action. In Greek, verb forms change not only with person, number, tense, and voice, but in four possible moods as well. "The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek" is an incomparable resource for students and scholars charged with the considerable task of untangling the Greek language's many complexities. With clear, concise instruction, Albert Rijksbaron shows how the various verb forms contribute to the richness of Greek literature as we know it, in this essential guide for both novices and experienced practitioners.
