There was a Greek Discourse Seminar here in Dallas in 1992. I think that
some of the papers were culled into a book, but one of the primary
participants was Stephen Levinsohn and his book has been published by the
Summer Institute of Linguistics:

Discourse features of New Testament Greek: A coursebook
Stephen H. Levinsohn In this volume, Levinsohn presents the results of
his study of the Greek New Testament as discourse--study he did "from
the position of descriptive linguistics." He makes the further statement:
"Indeed, I have approached the Greek text just as I would a text in any
other language of the world, using the same principles of discourse
analysis" (7).
