I'd like to put in a good word for Sihler. His book is really about the
origin of the morphological and phonological features of Greek, Latin,
Sanskrit, and a lot of other IE languages. If you've got "why" questions
about peculiarities of declension, conjugation, and other aspects of Greek
grammar, he just might be your man.
