[The Greek Latin Roots of English is] a light hearted tour of our ancient inheritance...Of course this volume has a place in education...[I]t seeks to make learning a simple process of absorbing little bite-sized portions of knowledge, then bombards you with questions that range from aspects of Roman culture to the dropping of an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. All designed to see if you understand what words actually mean and where that meaning stems from...Old words are constantly being recycled and used again with new meanings or associations, especially in the sciences. I discovered that many words I took for granted have different, sometimes darker meanings, or that words with two completely different meanings have a common root. Who would have thought that 'glamour' and 'grammar' are closely linked? Who would have thought our modern political ideas are described by ancient terms? Who would have thought that breaking copyright is based on a word for kidnapping? Read this book and find out why...This has been the hardest review I've ever written. Not because the subject is difficult, but because I can't stop opening the book and reading more. You'll just have to buy your own. UNRV History The Greek & Latin Roots of English is an informative, well-organized text written with great clarity. It offers an authoritative view of the classical influence on English and will delight readers as it guides them through the surprising complexities of our vocabulary. -- Tim Morris, University of Texas at Austin What a marvelous fifth edition of a textbook aimed squarely at today's college students who now, more than ever, need the sort of instruction that it provides. In the growing age of distance education and online courses, this book offers an invaluable classroom experience that students will thoroughly enjoy and remember for the rest of their lives. I have taught from The Greek & Latin Roots of English since the second edition published in 1995 and welcome this new one. Thanks to Green's ability to connect the languages and cultures of the ancient Greeks and Romans with those of our modern era, her textbook has been a joy to use, and our vocabulary course has become one of the most popular and important classes not only in our Classics program, but also in the entire university. -- Steven M. Cerutti, East Carolina University With its comprehensive and thematically organized treatment, and plenty of updated exercises, The Greek & Latin Roots of English remains the most accessible textbook of its kind on the market. -- David Larmour, Horn Professor of Classics, Texas Tech UniversityReseña del editor:
