Books by gramatical category

Post by Matthew Longhorn » February 21st, 2018, 3:54 pm

I was wondering whether anyone knows of anywhere that lists the most significant works according to categories such as the imperative, aspect etc
I am finally finishing Fantin’s book on the imperative mood and want to find something comparable looking at a different element of Greek grammar. I have Crellin’s book on the perfect which may be my next choice but failing a list I would love to see what people recommend as the best books dealing with other specific areas of grammar.

Micheal Palmer's Comprehensive Bibliography of Hellenistic Greek Linguistics is pretty helpful for this kind of thing. So is Mark Goodacre's ntgateway.

I'm sure other people here have bibliographies, these are two I have used.

What I would really love to see is a book size treatise on the subjunctive mood. Couldn’t see anything on those sites, any ideas?

I could find nothing. I did find this, however, if you are interested in the subjunctive in Latin:

But notice that asking price? Really?

yikes, I thought that Ramelli's book on apokatastasis was expensive. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Christian-Doct ... katastasis

Unfortunately I never got around to studying Latin and feel right now that I could probably carry on progressing in Greek and linguistics for a very long time!

I assume you have already worked through resources like Funk, Rydberg-Cox, and Smyth? Are there particular passages or uses of the subjunctive you want to understand better?

Hi Jonathan, I have worked through BDF, Robertson, Wallace, Porter etc as well as some of the newer ones. I am comfortable enough with the uses they reference.
I am just curious about it as I have a feeling that modern linguistics could provide more light on its intricacies. I was hoping to stumble across something like Fantin’s work on the imperative.
I will have a look through the resources you listed
