Shelves: greek-grammar This is, in my humble opinion, the best Greek Grammar for first year students. Unlike many other grammars, Mounce does not give information without explaining its purpose. Instead of listing all of the exceptions to a rule, he gives a simple, concise summary of the rule and seeks to explain the irregularities.
You will not feel as though you are reading a bunch of paradigms chapter after chapter. It is well organized and has a very encouraging practical example of the new material being This is, in my humble opinion, the best Greek Grammar for first year students. It is well organized and has a very encouraging practical example of the new material being proposed for each chapter. The accompanying workbook is a must if you are doing this on your own rather than with a class. The great thing about this book is that it affords the Greek neophyte to study on his own without the need for a formal course.
However, if you are serious about pursuing New Testament Greek, I would highly recommend going through a reputable college or University. The correction and insight gleaned from a knowledgeable professor is priceless. One of my only gripes is that Mounce does not make good use of the on-going developments in linguistics and verbal aspect theory. Granted, the issue is still being worked through, but many things, such as the nature of aspect in contrast with tense and tense-form and the difference between semantic encoding and pragmatic effect, would greatly help the new student.
Without taking advantage of these modern insights, Mounce puts the reader at a disadvantage and into the dangerous place of oversimplifying matters.
However, having said this, it is still the best Greek Grammar available today. Buy it and learn Greek!
