Intermediate Greek Grammar: Syntax for Students of the New Testament

IMG_0767This Intermediate Grammar utilizes a minimalistic approach, which seeks to avoid creation of many categories often found in intermediate grammars.  This Grammar follows the tradition established in Stanley Porter’s Idioms of the Greek New Testament, Sheffield, 1992.  This is seen in its separation of semantics and pragmatics, its understanding of verbal aspect, and its synchronic approach.

This grammar engages many recent discussions in linguistics, but at the same time does not appear informed by recent work on the Greek article, or Corpus Linguistics.

This grammar helpfully groups uses of various parts-of-speech under a few categories, and rejects deponency as a category.  It also provides many up-to-date discussions throughout its treatment.

I have an avid interest in teaching the languages used in the sacred literature texts, explaining the background for each piece of literature and structuring a method to interpret the literature. The goal is that an interpretation is based upon a thorough analysis of the language, text and background for the text.
