Advanced Greek (03)

26 04 2009

2806jpgHere’s the reading list for my Advanced Greek course, followed by the reference bibliography.

You’ll notice a mix of theoretical material with readings that focus on exegetical applications of linguistic method. My intention has been to introduce a number of advanced issues in Greek, and introductory issues in linguistics as they apply to Greek, in order to provide an overview of what’s out there and to give students ideas for their own research presentations and papers.

As we read through Greek text together (in our second hour each week), it’s been encouraging to see students applying the principles and methodology that we’ve been reading about in the set readings.
