JSNT Review Article on C. Campbell's Basics of Verbal Aspect

Postby Stephen Carlson » January 9th, 2013, 6:17 pm

The December 2012 issue of the Journal for the Study of the New Testament has a review article on Constantine Campbell's book, The Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek by Robert Crellin.

Abstract wrote:This review treats both Campbell’s book Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek specifically as well as his view of verbal aspect in Greek more generally. In the assessment of the latter, two points receive particular attention: (a) his desire to replace tense with spatial proximity/remoteness as the underlying semantic category encoded by the indicative, and (b) his identification of the perfect with imperfective aspect.


Upon reading the article, it turns out that Crellin's attention is largely critical and negative, but he does praise some parts of Campbell's book.
