Description

This book offers a systematic description of the use and grammar of the verb 'to be' in Ancient Greek, before the philosophers took it over to express the central concepts in Greek logic and metaphysics. The evidence is taken primarily from Homer, but supplemented by specimens from classical Attic prose. Topics discussed include the original status of the verb in Indo-European, as well as the logical and syntactic relations among copula, existential, and veridical uses.
