This volume is specially designed for three classes of reader: (1)the teacher with an interest in exegesis, or the Bible translator either in Europe or among the young native churches who wishes to know the exact significance of every construction; (2)the textual critic for whom characteristic differences in the author's style may help to decide between variants; (3)and also the student of comparative philology whose concern is the relationship of Biblical Greek to classical and Hellenistic. The plan of this work follows a natural linguistic pattern: the building up of the sentence from its independent elements right to the complicated co-ordinations and subordinations of the period. Instead of grouping nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, pronouns, etc. all into one long and complicated chapter they have been separated into 11 chapters. It is organized so that the various parts of speech are treated in the appropriate place as they contribute to the construction of the sentence. This allows the reader to get a better understanding of syntax in the true sense and not as a mere catalogue of parts of speech. The author also includes a thorough discussion of the complete sentence. This part of the book contains sections on the ordinary simple sentence and its construction and on different types of sentences and their varying structures.
