I will not be able to respond to email or comments on this blog this week (June 28—July 5, 2015). I’ll be back at work on the site on Monday, July 6.
Have a wonderful week.
I have uploaded my paper, “Argument Structure in Hellenistic Greek” to two places. You can read it here at Greek-Language.com at the following location:
You can also view it at Academia.edu.
This paper is an updated version of one I presented at a national meeting of the SBL in the late 1990s. A slightly updated version was published by Forum, the journal of the Westar Institute in 1999 under the title “From the Lexicon to the Sentence: Argument Structure in Hellenistic Greek.”
This latest version lays out my proposals for information that should be included in an electronic lexicon of Hellenistic Greek. Serious advances in digital technology have made it possible to include information about syntactic and semantic relationships that would have been impractical only a few years ago, and in the context of the work that Jonathan Robie and I are doing on using XML to structure and query databases, I decided it was time to make my most recent proposals easier to locate.
I would like to thank you for helping this blog reach the Top 50 Biblioblog ranking again this quarter. The summer rankings can be viewed here.
I have been somewhat slack on updating the blog recently, so I am particularly pleased to see it still remaining useful. I hope to be more active for the rest of the Summer.
You can once again support Greek-Language.com by purchasing books through our online store. For several years Amazon refused to pay vendors operating from North Carolina, but that has now changed.
Take a look at the Greek Language and Linguistics Bookstore. There’s not much there yet, but more will be coming soon.
I am happy to announce a new domain name pointing to my online grammar. LearnNTGrk.com has just become the third domain name that can be used to reach the grammar (the other two being HellenisticGreek.com and Greek-Language.com/LearnGreek.html).
Once you have accessed the grammar through this new domain name, you can also reach the rest of Greek-Language.com there as well.
The lessons here at Greek-Language.com can now be reached at HellenisticGreek.com. That domain name now redirects to Greek-Language.com/grammar.
