The Morphology of Koine Greek As Used in the Apocalypse of St. John: A Study in Bilingualism
I never heard of it, this was the closest I could find on Amazon. It seems to be out of print.
MAubrey wrote:The title is deceptive because it appears to only be about the morphology of Greek in Revelation, but that's not quite the case. In order for Mussies to discuss the morphology of Revelation, he must first provide a thorough and comprehensive semantic-morphological description of the language in general as a baseline for comparing Revelation. The result is a nearly comprehensive grammatical description of Greek morpho-syntax.

I'm glad you're telling me that. I have completely ignored this book.

It sounds, though, like you're currently lopsided toward one side of the debate. I would encourage your to read the other side as well.

That is true on the one hand. I try to understand one side completely, that's why I've read these authors first. Right now I'm reading Rijksbaron's "Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek" - unfortunately not very detailed in this matter so far. Then I want to go further with alternative authors, but I've no clue which one gives the best answers to the ideas of Porter, Campbell et al.
Maybe you could give me a interesting suggestion?
Thank you in advance !
