The structure of the noun phrase in Ancient Greek is extremely flexible in that the various constituents may occur in almost every possible order and that each constituent may or may not be preceded by an article. The use and function of the various options, however, have received very little attention. This book tries to fill this gap. On the basis of a functional analysis of the structure of the NP in Herodotus, the question is answered as to which arguments lead a native speaker in his choice to select one of the various possible NP patterns. The results do not only increase our knowledge of the NP, but also lead to a better interpretation of Ancient Greek texts. ContentsAbbreviations Ch. 1 Introduction 1Pt.
