Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar

Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar 
Stefan Baums 
(29 September 2019)
Five years ago, I made available an Outline of Gāndhārī Grammar that had grown out of my classes at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Leiden and the University of Munich. This past July, I updated my Outline for another class that I taught in the Leiden Summer School in Languages and Linguistics. The new version is freshly typeset and now features links from example words into the Dictionary of Gāndhārī that illustrate the range of evidence on which my grammar statements are based. Gāndhārī words are now cited in Dictionary orthography as well as by their reconstructed pronunciation. Like the previous version, this updated version of the Outline is made available under the terms of the CC BY-ND license. [Text via Gāndhārī Language and Literature]

Il Museo Papirologico dell’Università del Salento fu fondato nell’àmbito di un Progetto coordinato delle Università di Lecce e di Catania finanziato dalla Comunità Europea. La sua realizzazione ed il suo allestimento richiesero otto anni di lavoro. Inaugurato il 22 giugno del 2007, il Museo nacque per dare sistemazione e valorizzazione adeguate alla raccolta di papiri che chi scrive, direttore del Centro di Studi Papirologici dello stesso Ateneo, dal 1992 ha acquistato a più riprese sul mercato antiquario italiano e straniero. La Collezione dei papiri leccesi, contrassegnata dalla sigla PUL (Papyri Universitatis Lupiensis), attualmente è costituita da oltre 400 papiri, gran parte dei quali sono greci e demotici, ma non mancano papiri geroglifici, ieratici e copti.

Open Access Journal: Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics (BAGL)

 [First posted in AWOL 25 July 2016, updated 27 September 2019]

Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics (BAGL)
Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics
Biblical and Ancient Greek Linguistics (BAGL), in conjunction with the Centre for Biblical Linguistics, Translation, and Exegesis at McMaster Divinity College and the OpenText.org project (www.opentext.org) is a fully refereed on-line and print journal specializing in widely disseminating the latest advances in linguistic study of ancient and biblical Greek. Under the senior editorship of Professor Dr. Stanley E. Porter and Dr. Matthew Brook O'Donnell, along with its assistant editors and editorial board, BAGL looks to publish significant work that advances knowledge of ancient Greek through the utilization of modern linguistic methods. Accepted pieces are in the first instance posted on-line in page-consistent pdf format, and then (except for reviews) are published in print form each volume year. This format ensures timely posting of the most recent work in Greek linguistics with consistently referencable articles then available in permanent print form.

This review article examines two major works comprising a total of six volumes on Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). One is a collection in five volumes of selected works representative of the history of SFL from its origins to the present, co-selected by one of the major figures in this linguistic model. The other is a singlevolume handbook to SFL with essays by a wide range of SFL practitioners on an equally wide array of topics.
Keywords: Systemic Functional Linguistics, linguistics, grammatics, grammatical description, context, register, genre

A wave of research that began in the late 1970s and culminated with Richard Burridge’s What Are the Gospels? in 1992 effectively established the consensus that the Gospels are to be classified as ancient βίοι. In this article, I respond to Burridge’s work to demonstrate that his approach to genre is problematic in several ways, which calls the foundation of the current consensus into question. Following this ground clearing exercise, I articulate a way forward in how to understand the relationship between the Gospels’ genre and their social purpose, which is more in keeping with modern genre theory, especially as it is envisioned by systemic-functional linguists. The last section of the article then demonstrates the potential benefits of using Systemic Functional Linguistics genre theory by means of a sample genre analysis of the Lord’s Prayer in Matt 6:7–13, which demonstrates how to understand the social function of genres and opens an avenue for fresh research into the question of Gospel genres.
Keywords: genre theory, genre criticism, gospels, Systemic Functional Linguistics, register, βίος, ancient biography

Interpreters may tend to reach conclusions on the topic or subject matter of a text without having any criteria for how to determine it. Systemic Functional Linguistics offers a method by which one can determine what the text is about, including at the various levels of clause, clause complex, and discourse. The basis of analyzing the ideational meaning of a text (i.e., the subject matter) is the transitivity network, which exists at the clause level. This article outlines a method for analyzing transitivity in Koine Greek to determine the subject matter of the body of Paul’s letter to the Galatians.
Keywords: Galatians, transitivity network, ideational metafunction, field, participant, process, circumstance, verbal aspect, case, the law, subject matter, topic, theme

This paper explores how Hallidayan systemic-functional theory and method can advance current discussions of orality and textuality in Gospel Studies. Theoretically, the Hallidayan view challenges Kelber’s view of the discontinuity between oral and written media, establishing a continuum between spoken and written language. An application of Halliday’s method for measuring the degree of orality in a text demonstrates its relevance for Greek texts. As far as the Temple cleansing episodes are concerned (Matt 21:12-17; Mark 11:15–19; Luke 19:45–48; and John 2:13–22), the data conform to the general consensus that Markan language is more spoken language.
Keywords: spoken and written language, Halliday, Systemic Functional Linguistics, lexical density, grammatical intricacy, oral tradition
