The Syntax and Semantics of the Perfect Active In Literary Koine Greek

While linguists and scholars have been poring over Koine Greek literary works for centuries, the semantics of the perfect tense continues to be a vexing issue in Ancient Greek linguistics. Incorporating insights from both the neo-Davidsonian and Chomskyan traditions, The Syntax and Semantics of the Perfect Active In Literary Koine Greek offers a unified, comprehensive semantic description of the perfect and pluperfect In literary Koine Greek. The work draws on a large corpus of extant literary Koine Greek -- including the writings of josephus, Polybius, Applan, and Plutarch---to address temporal problems of the perfect and pluperfect in Koine Creek, as well as issues relating to transitivity. After examining the behaviour of the perfect form from a lexical semantic standpoint, chapters incorporate syntactic-semantic frameworks to provide an account of the perfect In terms of the causative alternation and aspectual classes of predicate. As such, The Syntax and Semantics of the Perfect Active in Literary Koine Greek offers new Insights Into a long-standing problem In Greek linguistics, as well as the interpretation of literary Koine texts.
