Probert (philology and linguistics, Oxford U.) provides a lucid explanation of the Greek accent system focusing on the practicalities of correct accent placement in this rewrite of of J.P. Postgate's Short Guide to the Accentuation of Ancient Greek (1924) . The book provides a reference for university students who already have some knowledge of Greek, but it also may interest more advanced scholars and linguists because of the inclusion of material based on the latest scholarship. Associated University Presses distribute the reference, which includes study exercises throughout. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
