Dickey’s first chapter on accents was too short and condensed for me. I’ve never systematically studied accents, and this is step one for composition, so I’ve taken off the shelf a book I bought years ago and haven’t touched: Carson’s Greek Accents: A Student’s Manual (Baker, 1985). It’s 167 pages containing 36 short lessons, a summary of rules and principal parts, and an answer key.
I’m a few chapters in and can say two things with certainty:
- This material is very well laid out and explained.
- This is my favorite Carson book, hands down.
