Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament

This work fills a significant need for a well-researched yet readable guide to discourse analysis. Using cross-linguistic principles and providing copious examples from both narratives and episles, Runge takes the reader from linguistic theory to practical exegetical application. Introducing a function-based approach to linguistics, Runge explores New Testament Greek grammatical conventions by focusing on the communication tasks they accomplish. His study of the ways in which words are used in texts and contexts has less to do with the specifics of speech and more to do with how humans are wired to process it. Therefore, Runge looks at how all languages operate before focusing on Greek. This examination of linguistics in general simplifies the analyticalprocess, and explains how and why we communicate as we do. Readers will learn that discourse analysis necessarily complements today's formal approaches to linguistics, as they are simultaneously led to a more accurate description of the biblical text.

Für sein unvollendet gebliebenes sprachphilosophisches Traktat "De vulgari eloquentia" (1303-1304), in dem die italienische Volkssprache auf Grund ihrer Natürlichkeit erstmals über das Lateinische gestellt wird, hat Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) im Gegensatz zu seinem Meisterwerk, der "Divina Commedia", nicht die Volkssprache selbst, sondern die lateinische Sprache gewählt. 1529 ließ Gian Giorgio Trissino eine italienische Übersetzung des bis dahin verschollenen Traktats erscheinen.Der vorliegende Band vereinigt Dantes lateinischen Urtext mit Trissinos Version und stellt diesen beiden Fassungen eine neue deutsche Übersetzung gegenüber, um – besonders für Studierende der Romanistik – die Arbeit mit diesem zentralen Text der Italianistik in Zukunft zu erleichtern. Vorangestellt ist ein einführendes Kapitel über die Prinzipien der Textedition.

Das Bild Griechenlands Im Spiegel Der Voelker (17. Bis 18. Jahrhundert). the Image of Greece in the Mirror of Nations (17th-18th Centuries)

Forschungs- und Diskussionsgegenstand der Beitrage dieses Bandes ist das Griechenlandbild, das in Kultur und Literatur verschiedener Nationen bestanden hat, seine Genese und Modifikation sowie sein Verhaltnis zur Wirklichkeit. Ein Grossteil einschlagiger literarischer Reflexe und Reflexionen fallt in die enge Epoche des Philhellenismus. Es ist aber nicht nur sinnvoll, sondern wissenschaftlich geboten, den Blick historisch auszuweiten: zuruck zu den Anfangen europaischer Volkerspiegel in der Fruhen Neuzeit und nach vorn bis in die Gegenwart. Denn nationale (Zerr-)Bilder und Stereotype wurzeln tief in der Geschichte und betreffen bis heute unser Denken. Die 30 Beitrage dieses Bandes von renommierten Forschern aus 14 Landern bringen neue Erkenntnisse ans Licht und verleihen damit der Philhellenischen Forschung neue Impulse. The research objective and discussion topic of the essays in the present volume is the image of Greece in the cultural, artistic and literary traditions in different countries in Europe and abroad, and the ways it was formed and modified. The essays raise also the issue to what extent this image corresponds to Greek realities. The main part of philhellenic images was formed during the early 19th century and during the 1820s and 1830s Philhellenism grew up to a European movement of considerable import. However, it is not only desirable, but also scientifically necessary to broaden the scope of the analysis of the reception of Greece in Europe and abroad in order to include both previous and subsequent forms of philhellenic images. Therefore the aim of the present volume is to concentrate on early forms of Philhellenism, but also on contemporary receptions of Greece in Europe and other continents. Besides an accurate account of how Greece has been perceived in the last four centuries, the essays also point out stereotypes and misconceptions that often characterize the image of Greece abroad. The volume gathers 30 works of researchers and experts from 14 countries and gives a new impetus to the research of Philhellenism."

Bridging the Grammar Gap Voice, tense, mood, participles . . . learning biblical Greek is tough enough with a firm grasp of the building blocks of English and daunting to those without. But that's just where many first-year students are. Through many years in the classroom, veteran language instructor Gary Long has learned that it's in the first semester that many students get bogged down in grammatical basics. Soon confidence, morale--and then grades--start to slip. A growing number of students have forgotten, or never learned, the fundamental grammatical concepts needed for studying Biblical Greek. Explanations of these concepts in standard Greek textbooks are either too skimpy or too complex. This practical resource will help. Written for learners with little or no formal study of grammar, this invaluable complement to standard classroom textbooks clarifies English grammar in order to more effectively teach concepts that are specific to New Testament Greek. Arranged to supplement teaching grammars, each chapter takes up individual concepts, first explaining how the concept works in English, then illustrating its use in biblical Greek. Abundant English and Greek examples illustrate each concept, most of them visually analyzed. Glossaries and translations help students comprehend the Greek words in each example.

Short enough to be synoptic, yet long enough to be usefully detailed, A Short History of Writing Instruction is the ideal text for undergraduate courses and graduate seminars in rhetoric and composition. It preserves the legacy of writing instruction from antiquity to contemporary times with a unique focus on the material, educational, and institutional context of the Western rhetorical tradition. Its longitudinal approach enables students to track the recurrence over time of not only specific teaching methods, but also major issues such as social purpose, writing as power, the effect of technologies, the rise of vernaculars, and writing as a force for democratization. The collection is rich in scholarship and critical perspectives, which is made accessible through the robust list of pedagogical tools included, such as the Key Concepts listed at the beginning of each chapter, and the Glossary of Key Terms and Bibliography for Further Study provided at the end of the text. Further additions include increased attention to orthography, or the physical aspects of the writing process, new material on high school instruction, sections on writing in the electronic age, and increased coverage of women rhetoricians and writing instruction of women. A new chapter on writing instruction in Late Medieval Europe was also added to augment coverage of the Middle Ages, fill the gap in students’ knowledge of the period, and present instructional methods that can be easily reproduced in the modern classroom.

Who Says You Have to Attend Seminary to Learn Greek? Reading the New Testament in its original language is one of the most effective ways to gain a greater understanding of the message of the Bible. Even though Greek is important to preparation for preaching and teaching, many who are called to ministry will not be able to dedicate years of study to master the language. But a lack of mastery of Greek should not exclude us from gleaning important insight and inspiration from reading Scripture in its original language. Now pastors, Bible study instructors, Sunday school teachers, and serious lay students of the Bible can learn the basics of biblical Greek at their own pace. Greek for Everyone explains how the Greek language works and introduces the Greek alphabet, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar, equipping readers to understand the original meaning of the New Testament. By focusing on the takeaways that most impact interpretation, this accessible book provides a working knowledge of biblical Greek for the study of Scripture.

After studying ancient Greek for a year, students often become discouraged when presented with unabridged classical texts that offer only minimal supportive apparatus. In welcome contrast, this intermediate-level textbook reinforces the first-year lessons and enables students to read Plato's Symposium, one of the most engaging works in Attic Greek, the dialect taught in most first-year courses. To meet the needs of students who are reading extended passages of challenging Greek for the first time, Louise Pratt, a classical scholar with more than twenty years' teaching experience, has lightly condensed the early readings, supplementing them with review exercises and new vocabulary. She includes the remaining portion of the dialogue in its entirety to give students the experience of reading Plato's imaginative dialogue in all its richness. All readings are glossed, with explanatory notes appearing on the same page as the relevant texts. Enlivened by twenty-five illustrations, Eros at the Banquet also features an introduction explaining the Symposium's historical and philosophical significance, a comprehensive glossary, and an up-to-date bibliography. Instructors may also supplement this volume with Pratt's The Essentials of Greek Grammar: A Reference for Intermediate Readers of Attic Greek, which includes many examples from the Symposium.
