Dear Clay,

Many thanks. An afterthought that followed my private response to you:
does he deal exclusively with the classical pronunciation as it is recorded in
our grammars?

My interest is a bit different: when and how did the Greek prosody start to
change, especially in what concerns proclitics and enclitics? And what about
evidences about those regions of the Hellenistic world where Greek was spoken
by people whose origin was non-Greek, Alexandria in particular?
