NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: COULTER GEORGE

Coulter George has published How Dead Languages Work, with Oxford University Press. A guided tour of six different ancient and medieval languages (not just Greek and Latin, but also Old English, Sanskrit, Old Irish, and Biblical Hebrew), it both celebrates the linguistic quirks that give each of these languages its distinctive personality and offers non-specialists a chance to see how these features play out in short excerpts from actual texts.
