The Denniston text is an extremely useful resource that any classicist should have in front of them when working with primary source materials from ancient Greece. The organization of the book facilitates ease of use, and the entries are filled with examples taken from antiquity. Comparing the entries on particles in Denniston with those in Smyth greatly add another level of understanding to the project of translation.

This is a book to be regarded with awe. There is no work of scholarship that compares with it. It is testimony to what real expertise and work can acheive. I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job explianing the nuances of one of the most subtle verbal forms in language. This book is a treasure,

This is an indespensible book for all of those interested in the subtlties of Classical Greek. No other work of scholarship comes close. It is a reminder in these days of cheap cultural criticism what real scholarship looks like.

Greek particles are among the most difficult aspects of ancient Greek to understand. What does "men" or "te" mean in a given context? Consider (in English) the difficulties of translating "well...," "so...," "OK...," or the implications of a compound like "well, ok, so..." in a specific context. For example, the meaning of "OK" is often not simply an affirmative. This volume offers excellent and comprehensive insights into the range meanings in given contexts for these little words that create often elusive nuance in the Greek language.

Like Marinone's "Tutti i Verbi Greci," this volume deserves a place on every classicist's bookshelf and is well worth the price.

A delightful gold-mine of information! This is not a book for the casual reader, and definitely not for the beginner at Greek. But for those already with some background in the language, Denniston provides a wealth of nuance about how the Greek particles are used. Those who are first studying Greek tear their hair out over keeping track of all the verb-forms. But once you get into actually reading the language, you find that verb-forms are not really the problem -- it's all those particles! Denniston explains them, and has himself a "way with words"; he describes the particles as providing "less body, more bouquet." This book seems as authoritative as Smyth's grammar, and that's saying a lot!
