The Grammar is a unique work of exceptional significance, providing the first full description of the Greek vernacular in the Medieval and Early Modern periods (circa 1100–circa 1700). It is based on an extensive corpus of literary and non-literary texts and is the result of many years of research. This major research programme, based at the University of Cambridge, was carried out by a research group consisting of academics specialising in linguistics, philology and the new technologies.
