Re: New Book on the Article

It has been a while since I read it, 3 or more months, but I think that he needed to do that. My reading of his thesis is arguing that we have incorrectly associated the meaning of the article in Greek with the meaning of the th words in English.

Re: Intro - Matt

Thanks Barry. I tend towards the "mildly" obsessive and can sometimes get stuck reading everything I can find on small points - good to hear a corrective from two people to focus more on the reading.

Re: New Book on the Article

Thanks for the thoughts on it. re. the link between morphology and semantic function I found it a useful thought when pulling in his further observations about the fact that the article can be used alongside pronouns other than the relative pronoun. He suggests that this is due to the similar functi...

Re: New Book on the Article

Thanks Stirling. I actually did read the dissertation quite a few months back, I also listened to his ETS presentation as well as the other two counter views given. Pretty sure I must have nearly walked into one or two lamp posts on the way to work trying to read it in the mornings. The only reason ...

Re: New Book on the Article

Wallace criticises him for not providing a thorough enough interaction with the literature. I did think that Peters' response was reasonable though.

Intro - Matt

Hi all, new member and a bit of a flurry poster today. I am self-taught in Greek but need a LOT more work. I started with Mounce and then moved on to Wallace.
