Greek aspect

I have had to read the discussion of Greek aspect, which is very
interesting to me, with much haste and no participation because of
pressing responsibilities. But I did want to mention to all the lovers
of aspect an article I just came across, written by a secular linguist
(I believe). The author is Egbert J. Bakker from the University of
Leiden and the title is: "Voice, Aspect and Aktionsart: Middle and
Passive in Ancient Greek". I have not yet read the article, but its
appearance in an anthology edited by Barbara Fox and Paul Hopper leads
me to expect it to be worthwhile. The anthology is entitled Voice: Form
and Function and was published by John Benjamins in 1993.
