Mathewson and Porter - Voice and Mood: A Linguistic Approach

Post by Matthew Longhorn »

In the time BGreek has been down there have been a few books that came onto my radar. I posted to NLM on facebook, but as with one of my other posts, reposting here in case people aren’t part of that group. This one is scheduled for Dec 2021 release

A recognized expert in Greek grammar examines two features of the Greek verb: voice and mood. Drawing on his years of teaching experience at a leading seminary, David Mathewson examines these two important topics in Greek grammar in light of modern linguistics and offers fresh insights. The book is illustrated with examples from the Greek New Testament, making it an ideal textbook for the intermediate Greek classroom. This is the first volume in a new series on Greek grammar edited by Stanley E. Porter.
And in the meantime, The Perfect Storm has finally been released, although possibly dated by now given the date of the conference

Nowhere are the chaotic debates surrounding contemporary aspect theory more heated than in discussions of the theory’s application to Hellenistic Greek, and especially its understanding of the semantics of the Greek perfect tense. This book is a distilled academic debate among three of the best-known scholars on the subject, each defending his own unique interpretation while engaging the other two. The Perfect Storm will prove an indispensable resource for any scholar seeking to write convincingly on the Greek perfect in the future.
