    Aims and Scope

    Interjections in Ancient Greek have long lacked a comprehensive account, despite their frequent occurrence in major texts. The present study of their semantics and pragmatics, encompassing all items encountered in Greek drama from the 5th century BC, applies a moderate minimalism, theory-driven method. Readers are offered a thorough and detailed study of this elusive, and in several respects deviant, class of linguistic items.

    "Nordgren presents his methodology and evidence carefully throughout, which will allow his conclusions to be tested in the future, and it is hoped that he continues to pave the way in this field."
    Simon Oswald in: Journal of Hellenic Studies 137 (2017) 287-88

    "[..] the chief accomplishment of Nordgren's book: anyone who wants more information on the difference between interjections like οἴμοι, ὤμοι, and φεῦ now has an obvious first place to start."
