Re: Aktionsart

I'm trying to come to grips with the way people are using the word Aktionsart . Would I be correct in summarising it this way? There are three things: - Lexical Aspect (aspecty-type things dependent on the lexeme) <------------------- Traditionally this is what everyone calls Aktionsart - Grammatica...

Re: Places where there is a lack of detail in the Greek

http://www.victoria.ac.nz/lals/about/staff/publications/paul-nation/2000-Lexical-sets.pdf Paul Nation, whom I believe to be the author of the linked article, is an expert in the field of second language learning, although I think I recall reading that he has simply summarised and correlated the rese...

Re: Are there 4 word in Greek for love / to love?

I suspect that the claim of 4 words (or at least the popularity of the claim) is from C. S. Lewis' book "The Four Loves". I seem to recall that the four words were ἀγαπη, φιλος, ερως, and στοργη (apologies for any misspellings; I've never read the book, and the paragraph I read about this was read b...

Re: Are the Louw and Nida discussions available?

I think I agree with all of that. I still think it's useful to learn some of the endings with their likely meanings, ie. the -τος ending.

Re: Verb catalog - lexical aspect

Transitivity is not really linked to lexical aspect It is definitely not a standard approach to aspectuality and in fact I would say that it is idiosyncratic. In fact, Campbell's proposed method of analysis is the weakest part of the book and should be avoided. OK, thanks. I'm still definitely a be...

Re: Verb catalog - lexical aspect

My brain also suddenly threw up this example. It's basically a study of the lexical aspect of ἐρχομαι vs. ἐισερχομαι. You'll probably want to start on about p. 14 (PDF page 25). She talks about the different markers for telling the difference between the different Vendler classes, including how to t...

Re: Verb catalog - lexical aspect

Hi. Jonathan suggested these as useful lexical attributes to record. +/- telic +/- stative +/- dynamic Campbell's "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek" makes use of +/-transitive, and then considers punctiliar to be a subset of +transitive, and stative to be a subset of -transitive. On page 59...

Re: Effective vocabulary learning strategies

Also on the topic of your advice... the research questions that were viewed as important 100 years ago aren't the ones that you're interested in. I wasn't actually aware that I had an area of interest when you wrote that. I've been thinking about it, and since many of my posts are dealing with voca...

Re: Scope of conjunctions

I assume you know that Runge's Discourse Grammar has a section which explains a number of the conjunctions (including μεν/δε)?
