The Greeks too have many particles, which appear to a perfon not well acquainted with the language to be mere expletives.
Seite 290 - Firdausi was the Cyrus of the first Greek historian, and the hero of the oldest political and moral romance, when I doubt that Louis Quatorze and Lewis the Fourteenth were one and the same French King.
