Pietro Bortone, University of Illinois at Chicago
"an extremely impressive book ... very convincingly argued ... an indispensable source of examples... B.'s linguistic breadth is also remarkable: it is clear, especially from the the first half of the book, that he is extremely comfortable with scholarly literature on cases and prepositions in a wide range of languages and time periods ... splendid ... [readers] will not be disappointed" - Linguist List
"Bortone's excellent treatise on prepositions from Ancient to Modern Greek is a welcome contribution to our knowledge of the language ... The result is a very impressive piece of scholarly work that showcases both philological and
linguistic analysis at its best ... Overall the volume is very well-written, with lucid and precise language that is a joy to read especially when one considers how challenging the subject is... a tour de force of classical and linguistic erudition, and a testament to Bs skill at synthesis... truly excellent work" - Diachronica
"both impressive and convincing. Although Bortone is admirably cautious about the general application of his conclusion ... its demonstration is a major achievement ... If you find discussions of how language works and how it develops interesting, read this book. If you dontwell, that is your loss." - David M. Schaps, Bryn Mawr
