The Measure of the Universe by Ellen Larson

A wide-eyed paleographer from Antares arrives on the Greek isles to study ancient inscriptions with a sharp-tongued communications professor. Blundering through the lexical labyrinth, they discover love among the runes--and a thread of deception that leads straight to interplanetary disaster. Will the amiable alien save the day by revealing his semantic secrets, or will the censorious Antarans throw the book at him? Will the professor of pictographs see the light? Fire up your universal translators, it�s Prometheus, Bloodied but Unbound!
