The premise of Lamerson's book is that in order to effectively learn the grammar of Greek you need to have some idea of the grammar of your own language, in this case, English. Since learning to read Koine is learning to read a dead language you can't really go about learning it by immersion into a culture of native speakers. At some point you need to interact with grammatical concepts, which is the main function of Greek grammars (along with expanding your likely non-existent Greek vocabulary and introducing the basics of Greek morphology). The issue occurs, as I can testify through watching others, when you read through a Greek grammar but have know idea what the grammatical concepts, such as a direct object, actually correspond to in English.
Lamerson's goal is to give a quick refresher on English grammar so that the student of Greek can have some mental 'hooks' on which to hang Greek grammatical concepts, to aid the learner in the beginning stages. This will really prove helpful at the beginning of learning the language as the reader is first beginning to slog through the cases and verbal system.Read more ›
