Re: Information structure and adjectives

In general, I suspect that a discourse account for adjectives that come after a noun make more sense than the traditional account of 2nd Attributive position. I am on extremely thin ice here - this is a guess, not informed opinion - but let me throw this out and see what people think. I'll use examp...

Re: Information structure and adjectives

First, let me confess that I am on very thin ice answering this. I am still not as deep into discourse and information flow as I want to become, even though I now work for an organization where many people are very deep into this. I think you have to pick a school to follow. Levinsohn / Runge is a v...

Mike Aubrey on the Greek Perfect

This is one of the most convincing talks I have heard on the Greek perfect. Mike presented this at the SEBTS conference about a month ago. Lots of data, carefully arranged to make a compelling case.

Re: Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek

So far, I really like it a lot. The explanations are clear and simple, with lots of examples, and the examples show enough narrative to give a feel for how the grammatical structures affect the overall flow of a text. The examples are translated in a way that makes the book accessible even for those...

Re: Pls explain syntax of Luke 24:21

This paper has a useful discussion of Luke 24:21: The Discourse Function of ἀλλά in Non-Negative Contexts (Rick Brannan) BDAG file these instances in sense 3, “before independent clauses, to indicate that the preceding is to be regarded as a settled matter, thus forming a transition to something new...

Re: Pls explain syntax of Luke 24:21

ἡμεῖς δὲ ἠλπίζομεν ὅτι αὐτός ἐστιν ὁ μέλλων λυτροῦσθαι τὸν Ἰσραήλ· ἀλλά γε καὶ σὺν πᾶσιν τούτοις τρίτην ταύτην ἡμέραν ἄγει ἀφ’ οὗ ταῦτα ἐγένετο. ἀλλὰ καὶ γυναῖκές τινες ἐξ ἡμῶν ἐξέστησαν ἡμᾶς, ἀλλὰ καὶ γυναῖκές needs some explanation as well, in a way that makes good sense in Cleopas' narrative.

Re: Tenses

Hopefully without wandering too far off topic: I've discovered that Rijksbaron is one of the editors of the very recently published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek . It's advertised as shedding light from modern linguistics on all aspects of classical Greek grammar, not just verbs. My training...

Re: Tenses

Verses quoted by Constantine Campbell in Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek could throw some light here (but not quite in the way he explained them). There is more than one school of thought among people applying modern linguistics to biblical Greek. Many here on B-Greek are more inclined to...
