Greek Accents: A Student’s Manual provides everything you need to know about New Testament Greek accents—a subject often slighted or ignored by introductory grammars. Those “grammars which deal with accents scatter their information throughout their pages,” writes the author, “and some of that information I soon discovered to be correct for Attic Greek, but incorrect for the Greek of the New Testament.” Along with a step-by-step presentation of the rules of accenting, illustrated by examples, this manual provides practice exercises and an answer key to aid comprehension.
