This course has two parallel aims: it introduces the language, script and history of the ancient Greek dialects: in order to do this effectively it also serves as basic introduction to Greek historical phonology and morphology. By extension, this will include an introduction to Indo-European studies. We shall study a range of epigraphic and literary texts: core topics will include the history of writing in the ancient Aegean and the graphic representation of Greek; the position of Mycenaean and Homeric Greek among the Greek dialects; and modern views on the interrelationships of the Greek dialects.  This course can also be taken by students at UCL on other MA programmes as a 30 credit option.
Assessment: 10 weekly problem sheets (30%), a project of 4000 words (35%), and a two-hour  exam in May (35%).
Place: UCL: 16 Taviton St. (= SSEES building WC1H 0BW), rm 433
