New Festschrift for Stephen Levinsohn

Postby MAubrey » July 1st, 2011, 5:41 pm

Logos has put up on prepublication a Festschrift for Stephen Levinsohn. If you don't know who that is, I advise you to immediately go to Eisenbraun's website and order his book Discourse Features of New Testament Greek: http://www.eisenbrauns.com/item/LEVDISCOU

Here's the table of contents for the Festschrift:

"Discourse Analysis as an Aid to Bible Translation" by Iver Larsen
"Why Hasn't Literary Stylistics Caught on in New Testament Studies?" by Stanley E. Porter
"Let Me Direct Your Attention: Attention Management and Translation" by Robert A. Dooley
"How Orality Affects the Use of Pragmatic Particles, and How It Is Relevant for Translation" by Regina Blass
"Organization and Allusion in Ezekiel 20" by R. J. Sim
"Breaking Perfect Rules: The Traditional Understanding of the Greek Perfect" by Constantine R. Campbell
"Greek Presents, Imperfects, and Aorists in the Synoptic Gospels: Their Contribution to Narrative Structuring" by Buist Fanning
"The Verbal Aspect of the Historical Present Indicative in Narrative" by Steven E. Runge
"Particles and Participles: A Helpful Partnership" by Margaret G. Sim
"The Semantic Effect of Floating Quantifiers in New Testament Greek" by Lindsay J. Whaley
"The Discourse Function of ἀλλά in Non-Negative Contexts" by Rick Brannan
"Information Structure Issues in Copular εἶναι Clauses" by Nicholas A. Bailey
"Evaluating Luke's Unnatural Greek: A Look at His Connectives" by Randall Buth
"The Use of the Article Before Names of Places: Patterns of Use in the Book of Acts" by Jenny Read-Heimerdinger

That's not a bad list by any means.

First a disclaimer that I'm one of the contributors to the volume, so take that as you will.

But if you have kept up to date with the so-called "aspect debate" as it relates to the Greek of the NT, then there are at least three articles in the book that you'd be interested in:

Further, the article by Robert Dooley on "attention management and translation" is simply excellent.
