Extract

The purpose of this note is to address some of the criticisms made by Alexandra Georgakopoulou and Dionysis Goutsos in their review of our Greek: a comprehensive grammar of the modern language in BMGS 23 (1999), pp. 337-40. We consider it necessary to clarify a number of issues because some of the points raised in the review are either unsubstantiated or inappropriate, stemming as they apparently do from the reviewers’ misunderstanding of our aims. We will examine the larger issues first.
