I have added Stephen Carlson’s blog, Hypotyposeis, to the blogs page at Greek-Language.com. While the focus of his blog is Christian origins, he has included significant content of relevance to Greek Linguistics.
I would like to recommend Stephen Carlson’s recent discussion of clitic placement over at Hypotyposeis. He has posted four discussions of key implications of David Goldstein’s dissertation.
- Clausal Clitic Placement in Classical Greek
- Koine Clitic Placement I: Goldstein vs. Taylor
- Koine Clitic Placement II: Goldstein vs. Levinsohn
- Koine Clitic Placement III: Wackernagel’s Law in the First Century?
A little over a year ago, Mike Aubrey had a good bit to say about clitic placement in the New Testament that is also very worthwhile reading (ΕΝ ΕΦΕΣΩ). If you want a refresher on the data, take a look at these posts in particular:
- The Word Order of Clitic Pronouns
- Pronominal Clitics in Noun Phrases: The Data
- Pronominal Clitics: The Difficult Examples
- Pronominal Clitics Attaching to Topics
- Pronominal Clitics Attaching to Verbs with Focal Constituents
- Constituent Order
I would like to thank both Mike and Stephen for the work they have dedicated to this topic.
