Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Greek

Post by Peter Streitenberger » June 11th, 2011, 6:34 am

Dear Friends,

has anyone read "Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Greek" by Sicking/Stork (Brill, 1997) ?

The title sounds very interesting ! I just orderd a copy. Be careful: it's very expensive.

Yours

Peter, perhaps you could supply us with a summary and some comments after you've had a chance to work through it, how helpful it was to you, and so forth.

Dear Barry,

ok - I'll get my copy this week and will need some time for reading. Then I'll give a summary here. Especially I'm interested in Verbal Aspect and Aktionsarten (the German Plural of "Aktionsart") - hopefully this book provides some new insight in that.

See you soon

hi,
In earlier days i have read this book from 2 greek scholars from the University Leiden. If I recall it correctly, they crossed weapons with the vision of Mckay, Ruigh (A'dam) et alii
It could be more or less outdated in our time and we have a strong succeeder in the work of Ruigh's succeeder in Amsterdam:Albert Rijksbaron>
That book is what you need, I think, greets RensRinzePost.

The book consists of two parts. Both deal with the semantics of the Greek verb. Part 1 discusses the Aspect Choice (Time reference or discourse function). Part 2 is about the synthetic perfect in classical Greek.
