Thank you, Mike ! I just ordered "Fanning" - hope he's easy to read and to understand.
Yours

I found Fanning much easier to read than Porter (it's been a long time since I read either).

The result is a nearly comprehensive grammatical description of Greek morpho-syntax.
I'm glad you're telling me that. I have completely ignored this book.
I have it now. And so far, it really seems to live up to its billing.
