In this volume the eminent classicist K. J. Dover presents a decade of work on the problems of Greek word order. Based on a series of lectures he gave at the University of Cambridge in 1959, the book is written in a lucid manner that maintains the reader's interest. He explains that although Greek appears to be indeterminate, there are certain conventions that are followed in its construction. He then develops his argument at a more technical level focusing on lexical, semantic, syntactical and 'logical' determinants. This is an insightful study for all classicists as well as those generally interested in languages.
