Re: Remoteness & Tense

It should, since the historical present is one of the main 'hooks' to catch unsuspecting Greek students for 'aspect only'. They claim to 'falsify' tense and then bamboozle the unsuspecting as if there were no similar problem with aspect. Randall, I'm somewhat perplexed. Do you actually want to conv...

Re: Lexical Aspect Classification

I like the fact that he lists many common verbs for me, which makes it easier to search electronic texts for patterns that occur based on his classification of the verb. Micheal is quite right about the pervasiveness of the approach. In linguistics some prefer to apply the classification to individ...

Re: Remoteness & Tense

The 'otherside' needs to answer why they have a problem with 'e' marking 100% of imperfects as past, Most concede that the imperfect is the closest verbform there is to a past tense. I, like you, would really enjoy to hear why the historical present could break its aspectual character without upset...

Re: Remoteness & Tense

The Greeks looked at its form and called it αὔξησις 'increase'. Since it's their language, they get to name things. But 'past-prefix' is good for English. The problem is that its not particularly meaningful and also far, far from transparent. I do indeed call it αὔξησις in Greek, and were I involve...

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

I'm guessing that won't be an issue, but I'll keep it in mind. I'm pretty sure that their Working Papers is limited to people connected with the school rather than entirely open like what we're doing.

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

I'm going to contact the people who run the Work Papers of the Summer Institute of Linguistics,University of North Dakota Session to see about getting some feedback in terms of policies, procedures and what not in producing their rather successful WP.

Verbal Syntax Dissertation

I found this dissertation on ProQuest today and was wondering if anyone has ever heard of it or seen it. It doesn't even appear in T. V. Evan's Verbal Syntax in the Greek Pentateuch , so I'm guessing that it's relatively obscure. Syntax of the moods and tenses of the Greek verb in Septuagint Genesis...

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

I think it would be a good idea to also contact departments of linguistics where students have previously done theses or dissertations on Hellenistic/Biblical/Koine Greek. That's not a bad idea. -Ohio State University (Brian Joseph is on faculty) -Northwestern University (Mari Olsen wrote her aspec...

Re: Which Bible Study Software?

I use Logos which is pretty good. Of course you have to Buy the BDAG lexicon on top of the Biblical Languages package. It was worth it. But searching for structures seems to me really hard to do. I think you can do it (I think Logos uses Emdros by Ulrik Sandborg-Petersen for the syntactic query par...

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

For projects in this forum, I don't think it matters so much where the results are published, as long as they are published on the Internet somewhere, for free, with appropriate intellectual property rights (e.g. a Creative Commons license). Most of the time, Working Papers projects seek toward pub...
