This Greek grammar, newly revised and reset for the second edition, can be used profitably in three ways: as an instrucitve handbook, as an intermediate level textbooks and as a basic reference work to the Greek of the New Testament. Students needing a tool to guide them from elementary textbooks to fully fledged reference grammars will welcome Idioms of the Greek New Testament. The major topics of Greek grammar are treated in a useful pedagogical sequence. Substantial discussions are provided on Greek verb structure, the case system, the use of prepositions, particles, and various types of clauses, among others. This book charts new ground in many of its chapters. Among the innovative treatments are those on tense and aspectm mood and attitude, conditional clauses, word order and clause structure, and discourse analysis. The entire grammar is written with one eye on the traditional categories of Greek grammar and with the other on recent discussions of structural linguistics. Reference to other Greek grammars is made throughout, and a glossary of terms and full indexes are provided.
