Re: Recently Published Dissertation on Aspect

Not that recent, it's 2009. I've read it, and it's generally good but it may be too formal for some. It takes a fairly common approach to aspect in contemporary linguistics (Klein) and integrates it with Discourse Representation Theory.

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

Polytonic users have special needs and deferring to a montonic authority resulted in a sub-optimal solution. I'm still convinced they botched it.

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

As a summary, your statement is truer and more complete than mine, but I'd still argue that Unicode's purpose is differentiating characters that should look different, not characters that should never look different (such as 'tonos' and 'oxia'!). Who decided that tonos and oxia "should never look d...

On a side note, I just realized that my 666th post on this forum was the first of my posts in this Revelation thread. :lol:

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

So use Tonos if you want normalization to work. In my environments, I convert Oxia to Tonos so queries will work the same way for texts that look the same. True, and it's a botch on Unicode's part. Standard fonts that distinguish oxia and tonos (as for example, one of B-Greek's defaults) will end u...

Re: Grammaticalization of tense?

Speaking of Wallace, what place should his book have today? I've read some who swear by him and others who swear at him. Should it be on a very short list of must-have grammars? Obviously opinions will vary, just curious. Robertson is quite old, but I still hear him recommended. I have Wallace. It ...

Re: Grammaticalization of tense?

When we hear someone making a distinction between affected and unaffected meaning, what sort of semantic theory is lurking under the surface of that reasoning? When I hear those terms, I hear Wallace. I don't believe he has anything like a formal semantic theory, rather a lot of experience teaching...

Re: Need a lookup from the first edition of Bauer's Wörterbuch

Yes, but that's not the issue. The issue is that these active-voice occurrences are classified under a middle-voice heading. I think that is the issue. If you look at the head of the entry (I'm quoting from the 2d ed. BAGD), it says: "the 2 pf. ἀπόλωλα serves as a pf. mid., ptc.ἀπολωλώς." I think t...

Re: Croy 1999 vs 2011

The cover is certainly different. My own copy has the olive green 2011 cover, while the older ones have a (bluer) jungle green cover. As for the content, the copyright on mine is 1999. My copy also had a CD-ROM (which I've misplaced), which is probably another difference. The pagination may differ a...
