Re: New Book on the Article

The idea that one could perform a statistical measurement of anything as vague and nebulous as telicity and perfectivity strikes me as mildly absurd. I dunno. If you can define the terms fairly rigorously, which I think you can, then you can measure their association within a corpus. After all, the...

Re: New Book on the Article

... , again nothing good from the Porter school. Don't paint with too broad a brush. Francis Pang's work seems to be well received by many people here, for instance. Pang's literature review was well-received for reading and engaging broadly into the larger linguistics literature (which rather stri...

Re: New Book on the Article

The only reason I would be tempted to but the book is that he may have developed / refined his arguments between submission of the thesis and writing the book. I was also hoping that enough time would have passed now for people to critique it and possibly confirm or reject its claims. I do search o...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Yes, that Classical application was the same thing that I was talking about. But they called them(selves) "specialists in first century spelling," that was what was hard to swallow. Hort had an interest in manuscript spellings, but Westcott couldn't be more bored by it and at best seemed to humor h...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Tyndale Mark is more consistent and wider in following mss spellings than WH. I dont know when the spelling normalization took place. For a while it was referred to as having "experts" in first century spelling edit the spelling. That was a sick joke, a euphemism for changing the spelling to fit Er...

Re: New Book on the Article

I still have not read the book. I would probably only do so if I were researching an article on the article (heh) and wanted a thorough review of the literature.

Pete Williams claims that B (Vaticanus) consistently preserves etymological length with long ει versus short ι.
Wasn't the contrastiveness of vowel length lost by the time of Vaticanus (early 4th cen.)?

Re: The Greek Verb Revisited

I definitely recommend it, as my blurb on the book's back states.

Re: Recently Published Dissertation on Aspect

So would you say it's generally worth it or are there better ways to spend our time if we want to learn more about contemporary views on aspect? Well, I found it helpful when I read it, but I enjoy reading that stuff and your mileage may vary. A summary of the most useful parts of her analysis has ...

Re: Recently Published Dissertation on Aspect

Not that recent, it's 2009. I've read it, and it's generally good but it may be too formal for some. It takes a fairly common approach to aspect in contemporary linguistics (Klein) and integrates it with Discourse Representation Theory.
