Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

The only work I can recall attempting to deal with such questions in any depth is Richard Hoyle's Scenarios, Discourse and Translation . It's a long time since I worked through it.

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

I suppose I should quote Peters' definition of the article from p. 227 of his monograph: The presence of the article indicates the speaker or writer’s subjective presentation of a noun, which is presented as something concrete, in that it is characterized as belonging to immediate experience as an a...

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

Does anyone have a list of the table of contents of the book edited by King? It looks interesting. I was hoping the T of C would be available via Amazon but no luck.

Re: Anaphoric Article

Academia has Ronald D. Peters 2012 dissertation where he reviews at length the traditional approach and the sets out an SFL (Systemic Functional Linguistics) treatment.

Re: Anaphoric Article
