Schmidhauser, revisiting some of the philosophical territory and considering it from the viewpoint of the prehistory of linguistics, traces the “birth” of grammar to the Stoics; their hierarchy of constitutive elements of language (writable sound, syllable, word, sentence) as well as their distinction of “parts of speech” will prove very influential. Schmidhauser shows how the great grammarian Apollonius Dyscolus as well as the subsequent grammatical tradition are indebted to it in spite of some important semantic modifications.

The language of the Linear B tablets, he shows, may be highly archaic in some respects, but it is not to be equated with Proto-Greek: some of its features are shared with only a subset of the dialects we know from the Archaic and Classical ages. Those dialects are the subject of Stephen Colvin’s chapter, which shifts the focus from time to space, the space of the Greek language. In his discussion of the geographical variants of Greek, Colvin resists the earlier paradigm of diversity developing out of an original unity in some kind of “autonomous” development.
