Re: The Epistemology of Linguistics

I regret that I was not around in October when this discussion was underway. I've enjoyed reading through these old posts and would like to add only that the difficulty in giving a precise definition for the field of Linguistics stems from the diversity of strands that led into the formation of the ...

Re: μονον - as an adverb

Δαυίδ: I enjoyed reading your reflections on the placement and meaning of μόνον. You are clearly paying close attention to both syntax and context. Here are a few comments on Matthew 10:42 and 1 Corinthians 15:19. Your preferred reading of Matthew 10:42 fits well with both the context and the usual ...

Re: Lexical Aspect Classification

I don't have a copy of Fanning's book handy, so I can't look at his classification at the moment. It's been a while since I saw it, so I don't really know if it's "the best one in town."

Re: Lexical Aspect Classification

This kind of classification system is fairly common in discussions of lexical semantics, and for a large number of words it works well. In any language, though, there will be a small number of words that prove problematic, so debates naturally ensue as to where some words best fit.

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

Great idea, though it would be a good idea to be careful. I would not want them to see what we are doing as in any way being in competition with their work.

I would love to do that, but I can't find the way to do it. How do I create a new forum with the name "Beginning and Intermediate Grammars"? Better said, how do I split this forum into two with the titles "Beginning and Intermediate Grammars" and "Reference Grammars"?

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

I would be glad to work jointly with the b-greek forum on the issue of hosting. The server on which the working papers reside physically is of little consequence as long as it's secure. We can use mirroring or cross-linking to make the papers available from both locations.
