2. Course outline
We have two hours a week in our Advanced Greek class. One hour is given over to the discussion of theory. Part of that involves reviewing and discussing the set reading, and part of it involves delivery of theoretical content.
The second hour is given to reading Greek text together in close detail, while seeking to apply the theoretical insights we have been exploring. In term one, we’re reading 1 Timothy; in term two we’ll be reading from a variety of non-biblical texts.
Here’s an outline of our first term:
1. Introduction (including a brief history of Greek scholarship)
2. Linguistic Theory
3. Lexical Semantics and Lexicography
4. Verbal Semantics (mainly deponency)
5. Idiolect, Genre, and Register
6. Discourse Analysis I
7. Discourse Analysis II
