How Dead Languages Work

Coulter H. George

  • Gives non-specialists a good idea of what it's like to read ancient Greek, Latin, Old English, Sanskrit, Old Irish, and Hebrew without requiring a technical grounding in these difficult languages
  • Grounds broader examination of linguistic features in discussion of specific ancient texts, with accompanying translations
  • Draws linguistic and historical connections between superficially disparate languages, such as Sanskrit and English
