This collection of essays brings together into one volume papers from the Society of Biblical Literature meetings in 1990 and 1991. This volume divides itself neatly into two sections. Part I, Verbal Aspect, includes two major presentations and responses on the topic of Greek verbal aspect. The subject is an important one, and one that promises not to go away in the next several years. If the proponents of the theory are correct, the semantic category of verbal aspect will prove vital to future analysis and exegesis of Greek, including that of the New Testament. Part II includes four substantial papers on various topics in Greek grammar and linguistics, including work on discourse analysis, construction grammar, the phrase as a constituent in Greek grammatical description and the possible Semitic origins of the finite verb with cognate participle. These interesting and varied essays are designed both to illustrate the current state of discussion of New Testament Greek grammar and to provide impetus for future research and publication.

Review:

“This volume is important for the development of aspect theory in New Testament Greek and the application of modern linguistics to the New Testament corpus ... These initial essays are necessary reading for understanding the state of the discussion today. The Studies in Biblical Greek (Peter Lang) series is churning out many important studies on verbal aspect ... This is a wise starting place for research in this area.” ―Todd Scacewater, Exegetical Tools
