Re: Teaching Aspect and Aktionsart

Dear Mike, thank you indeed for the interesting examples. I'm teaching in German, but I have to give english examples to make this clear (e.g. John was reading, when I entered), as German has not a aspect system at all. We do this using adverbs. Thank you for this link, Mike ! I'll read the page aft...

Re: Teaching Aspect and Aktionsart

Dear Mike, it's a first grade seminary, but interested students want to learn and know more - "beyond the basics" so to say. That's why I needed a quite simple example or explanation. I have different concepts in my mind, but want them to hear the "communis opinio". Nice to hear from you ! Yours Pet...

Teaching Aspect and Aktionsart

Dear B-Greek-Friends,

what is the best way to make the difference between "Verbal Aspect" and "Aktionsart" for my students clear? I'm looking for a good example or something like that.
Thank you !

Re: Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Gr

Dear Barry, Peter, perhaps you could supply us with a summary and some comments after you've had a chance to work through it, how helpful it was to you, and so forth. ok - I'll get my copy this week and will need some time for reading.

Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Greek

Dear Friends,

has anyone read "Two studies in the semantics of the verb in classical Greek" by Sicking/Stork (Brill, 1997) ?

The title sounds very interesting ! I just orderd a copy. Be careful: it's very expensive.

Yours
Peter, Germany

Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

Dear Mike, It sounds, though, like you're currently lopsided toward one side of the debate. I would encourage your to read the other side as well. That is true on the one hand. I try to understand one side completely, that's why I've read these authors first. Right now I'm reading Rijksbaron's "Synt...

Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

Dear Mike,

I've read Porter and Mathewson so far. Porter isn't very easy to understand, if you are not a native speaker. I had to read some passages severals times. Mathewson was quite nice.
I'm curious how Campbell's two volumes will be.
Thank you for all the information !
Yours
Peter, Germany
