A Brief History of Ancient Greek accessibly depicts the social history of this ancient language from its Indo-European roots to the present day. * Explains key relationships between the language and literature of the Classical period (500 - 300 BC) * Provides a social history of the language which transliterates and translates all Greek as appropriate, and is therefore accessible to readers who know little or no Greek * Written in the framework of modern sociolinguistic theory, relating the development of Ancient Greek to its social and political context * Reflects the latest thinking on subjects such as Koine Greek and the relationship between literary and vernacular Greek
