Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse

Post by cwconrad » April 17th, 2016, 9:00 am

Now Online | Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse by Anna Bonifazi, Annemieke Drummen and Mark de Kreij
http://kleos.chs.harvard.edu/?p=5982
We are excited to announce the online publication of the first four volumes of Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse: Five Volumes Exploring Particle Use Across Genres, a born-digital publication from the Hellenic Studies Series co-authored by Anna Bonifazi, Annemieke Drummen, and Mark de Kreij. This comprehensive work, available in full on the CHS website, analyzes particle usage across five genres of ancient Greek discourse—epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy, and historiography—with the aim of exploring communicative strategies, cognitive processes, and the interactional dynamics of language production.

The first four volumes are:

Volume I. Foundations
Volume II. Particle Use in Homer and Pindar
Volume III. Particle Use in Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes
Volume IV. Particle Use in Herodotus and Thucydides
The forthcoming fifth volume will consist of a searchable, sortable database designed to showcase the wealth of previous particle studies. An important tool for researchers, it will include information from the fourteen monographs on Greek particles that appeared between 1588 and 1993, as well as hundreds of dedicated articles, grammars, thesauruses, and lexica.

Bonifazi et al., I.1 §6 wrote:On the theoretical level, we aim to raise awareness of dimensions of language besides the syntactic organization of texts and the semantics of their content. We pursue this goal by paying attention to a wider range of parameters than is usual when segmenting and interpreting classical texts, for example the communicative strategies, cognitive processes, and interactional dynamics of language production.
