The semantics and pragmatics of lexical aspect, _Studies in the
Linguistic Sciences_, Fall 1994. [deals with English lexical aspect,
but puts a perspective on Fanning's account of Greek]

The semantics and pragmatics of the Koine Greek "Tense" forms,
Unpublished paper presented at OSU conference on Byzantine and Modern

tense forms, basically chapter 6 of the thesis, without lexical
