Ancient Greek Inside Out

The semantics of grammatical constructions. Guide for exegetes and students in Classical and New Testament Greek

By Gert J.C. Jordaan

This book is a reference instrument for use by students and exegetes exploring the shades of meaning often hidden in the language of ancient Greek texts. First, it lists the different possible meanings of each construction, illustrated by examples from both Classical and New Testament texts. Second, the book provides a similarly illustrated list of Greek constructions for every grammatical meaning. This section may be regarded as the book's unique contribution to Greek linguistics. It enables an exegete to compare the construction(s) in his text to other Greek constructions within the same semantic field, and to better demarcate the nuances and subtleties of his text.
