Re: Significance of Aorist Following Present Tense

In Revelation (11:1) John is told to "Rise and measure..." Rise is in the present tense and measure in the aorist: καὶ ἐδόθη μοι κάλαμος ὅμοιος ῥάβδῳ λέγων ἔγειρε καὶ μέτρησον τὸν ναὸν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ τοὺς προσκυνοῦντας ἐν αὐτῷ What is the significance of the second action in the a...

Re: "the monosemic nature of discourse markers"

Monosemy does seem to be a go-to option for relevance theorists. Really? This account combines the idea of (radical) semantic underspecification in the lexicon with a theory of pragmatic strengthening (based on conversational implicatures). Lexical Semantics and Pragmatics Reinhard Blutner, Berlin ...

Re: "the monosemic nature of discourse markers"

Assuming an absolute "monosemy" is how many people get off-track in their semantics and produce counter-intuitive results. {...} Cognitive Linguistics is a primary whistleblower against monosemic approaches to simple syntactic-morph categories that must cover a world of different contexts.

"the monosemic nature of discourse markers"

Seems to me that arguing for the "the monosemic nature of discourse markers"[1] indicates an underlying "code model" of communication.

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

I agree with a number of things the author says ... On the other hand, his comments on Ferdinand de Saussure left me baffled. Isn't the first time I have run into this. Lots of people have made strange comments about Saussure. For example late '70s literary criticism, See Paul H. Fry's excellent le...

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

The best place to check if an academic work is cited is https://scholar.google.com If you search for "Reclaiming Γάρ" there, you'll get two hits, the thesis from 2014 and a book chapter by the same author from 2017. None of them have any citations (although the book chapter should have cited the th...

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

A PhD thesis/dissertation may generate massive levels of interaction over several decades and still be of questionable value.

It's simply an articular infinitive as the object of the preposition χωρίς, nothing special or unusual about it.
