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.

David Holton and Io Manolessou argue that “medieval Greek” is a language in its own right that is not done justice when the ancient language remains the frame of reference. Medieval Greek philology, they argue, can be more fruitfully brought into line with the study of the medieval vernaculars of the Western European languages. Their detailed survey of the changes taking place in the medieval period, many of which originate in the Koine, can be profitably read in conjunction with Brixhe’s survey of the linguistic changes taking place in Hellenistic and Roman Asia Minor.
