New Testament Verbs of Communication
I have added Paul Danove’s New Testament Verbs of Communication: A Case Frame and Exegetical Study to the bibliography. Danove has been developing his Case Frame analysis since the mid 1990s, and along the way he has contributed significantly to our understanding of the argument structure of Hellenistic Greek verbs. It is good to see this new … Continue reading "New Testament Verbs of Communicatio...

LA DETERMINATION DU NOM EN GREC CLASSIQUE by Michele Biraud
A colleague recently ask me about Biraud’s treatment of determiners in Ancient Greek and its implications for the DP hypothesis (Determiner Phrase hypothesis). I had not seen the book in over a decade, so I put my colleague off until I could find a copy. I found one in a nearby library and it seems to confirm … Continue reading "LA DETERMINATION DU NOM EN GREC CLASSIQUE by Michele Biraud"

His Let’s Read Greek website has numerous helpful resources for reading Greek texts. This is one among many. Text and audio of Mark 1-9
Alan Bunning’s Textual Criticism Resources
I’ve updated the homepage to give more prominent placement to Alan Bunning’s Center for New Testament Restoration (CNTR). The transcriptions of New Testament manuscripts he has provided are amazing. Having these available in machine-actionable form is an incredible boon to the work of textual criticism! I linked the image on the homepage directly to the manuscripts … Continue reading "Alan Bunning...
A fresh approach to Greek accents
James Tauber has published a short video explaining the accentuation of Ancient Greek words in a way that is more precise than what is found in beginning grammars that deal with the issue.
