On the advice of someone I have largely ignored accents (except eg;when an accent differentiates one word from another, or when a circumflex indicates a contraction.) Was this good advice or should I try to learn at least the basics of it? I have almost completed my beginners grammar. Do most intermediate grammars include the rules for accents? I was thinking about buying "Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics" by Daniel B. Wallace, is this a good choice?
