More than a book of popularization, this book is a kind of manual for the contemporary linguist, non-specialist ofClassics. (translated) * Lionel Dumarty, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
The book is a successful introduction to ancient Greek and Roman thinking about language. * M.L. Goldman, CHOICE *
Matthews has undertaken a massive endeavor and has acquitted himself well. He has not only scrupulously provided refrences to many of the original Greek and Latin texts but has also quoted and translated them - accurately I might add - and has used them as points of departure for his analyses, exactly as he should have. That I would beg to differ with him on occasion is only to be expected and does not detract from his accomplishment. * Daniel J. Taylor, Historiographia Linguistica *
