Both beginning and advanced students of Greek will find this an invaluble tool. It enables one to read the text more quickly, seeing at a glance the grammatical relationships between words. It serves admirably as a reference tool, allowing one to check in a moment the accuracy of his own analysis of a word. And it proves most helpful to those looking for creative ways to review and improve their knowledge of Greek.
The analysis is, write the editors in a lengthy, explanatory appendix that should be of interest to all scholars and serious students of Greek, "both traditional and innovative, both transparent and opaque." It takes into account more than morphological considerations, considering sentence-level and discourse-level information as well. "This volume reflects discourse principles," write the editors, "especially in its analysis of conjunctions and particles."
