Brill’s Companion to Ancient Greek Scholarship aims at providing a reference work in the field of ancient Greek and Byzantine scholarship and grammar, thus encompassing the broad and multifaceted philological and linguistic research activity during the entire Greek Antiquity and the Middle Ages. The first part of the volume offers a thorough historical overview of ancient scholarship, which covers the period from its very beginnings to the Byzantine era. The second part focuses on the disciplinary profile of ancient scholarship by investigating its main scientific topics. The third and final part presents the particular work of ancient scholars in various philological and linguistic matters, and also examines the place of scholarship and grammar from an interdisciplinary point of view, especially from their interrelation with rhetoric, philosophy, medicine and nature sciences.

This textbook is designed for advanced (graduate and postgraduate) students, and will also be of interest to scholars. It blends a cognitive linguistic approach to language and language use with insights from contemporary pragmatics, the ultimate aim being to advance a unified model of cognitive pragmatics. Basic themes in cognitive linguistics and pragmatics are covered ranging from figurative language and thought, e.g. conceptual metaphor and metonymy, the role of inferencing in the construction of meaning, in particular, indirect speech acts, to the conceptual and functional motivation of morphosyntactic structure. Finally, the book offers many suggestions and ideas for student papers as well as larger research projects that promise to reveal new insights into conceptual structure, communicative function, and their influence on the grammatical structure of language.

Il volume, in una nuova edizione aggiornata, presenta il quadro linguistico europeo alla luce degli eventi che hanno caratterizzato il vecchio continente negli ultimi anni. La trattazione tiene conto di due principali linee di lettura: da un lato vengono poste le premesse storiche e storico-linguistiche sottese alla definizione dell'Europa antica, medievale, moderna e contemporanea; dall'altro vengono analizzati, in ottica tipologico-linguistica (sia diacronica che sincronica), alcuni grandi fenomeni attinenti in particolare ai livelli morfologico e sintattico di buona parte delle lingue europee. La distribuzione areale di tali fenomeni permette di individuare la presenza di alcune significative sub-aree, quali la cosiddetta "lega linguistica balcanica" e la cosiddetta "area carolingia".
