Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presets an overview of this book, which aims to provide a functional analysis of the factors that determine the structure of the noun phrase (NP) in Ancient Greek, viz. the ordering and articulation of its constituents. The central theme of the first part of the book is word order variation in the NP. This part generalises over definite and indefinite NPs, or rather, articular and non-articular NP constituents, as the factors that determine the order of the NP constituents are insensitive to their articulation. Since two NPs with exactly the same ordering may differ in the presence or absence of the article, the position of this article and the number of articles expressed, the second part of the book analyses the articulation of the NP constituents.

Keywords: Ancient Greek; articulation; noun phrase (NP)
