THE VIEW OF WORD ORDER IN THE ANCIENT GRAMMATICAL TRADITION

The article deals with diff erent aspects of handling the theme of the word order in Greek and Latin languages by ancient authors (Dionysius of Halicarnassus,
Quintilian, Demetrius, Priscian). Among other approaches to this problem the author discovers the pragmatic aspect of word order, which is probably the fi rst attempt in European linguistics of getting close to the Functional Sentence Perspective.
