Re: Books to help reading Hebrews

I have been relying on the new international Greek testament commentary and the exegetical summary volume from SIL so far

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

Thanks Stephen. The article by Locatell and Andrasson references Bybee a lot and I certainly enjoyed that paper - that seems interesting and small enough with decent application as an area to get stuck into. Would there be any works I should read first in your opinion? I saw some books on cognitive ...

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

Hi Mike, that is precisely my issue - the field being so huge that I don't even have a starting point. I am finding Tendahl's discussion of conceptual metaphors interesting at the moment so may eventually take some time there but would prefer something to get a bit of a broader understanding. On the...

New Linguistic Theories to learn

Can anyone suggest a linguistic theory that would complement my reading on Relevance Theory? I will be continuing to focus on RT as, frankly, I don't even have a chance at becoming competent at that with the free time I have; that said, I want to start exposing myself to another theory with differen...

Re: Hebrews 6:18-19

Thanks. So we are to see the hope or the anchor (which is a metaphor for the hope) being firm, steadfast and having the property of moving behind the curtain? In other words our hope is to move beyond the curtain and be in the presence of God?

Hebrews 6:18-19

Hi all, I am puzzled by the use of the participle εἰσερχομένην here. It looks like it is functioning adjectivally modifying the relative article above, however “which we have as a firm and secure anchor of our souls and entering into the inner part of the curtain” doesn’t seem to make much sense to ...

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

I think that it perhaps goes wider than just removing the aspect only position. For example, just as cross linguistic work such as that referred to by Locatell and andrasson shows grammaticalisation paths there are also lexicalisation paths. Relevance theory’s proposed pragmatic processes such as br...
