Abstract

When a modern linguist is confronted with a corpus language, new challenges are to be met. Linguistic material that has been preserved to us in case of Ancient Greek is voluminous, it also includes texts of a broad stylistic range. The main difficulty is represented by the fact that one can not rely on the same methods that one would apply to a word order research in a modern language where, as the last resort, native speakers exist that can be consulted. It is therefore no surprise that a search for an applicable method was a prominent feature of most modern linguistic researches of the word order in Ancient Greek.
