Reading Secondary Literature

As I’ve moved from analyzing pronouns to reading the secondary literature about them, I am utterly shocked by two things:

  1. How truly vast the literature on pronominal clitics is (both typologically across language and with reference to Greek)
  2. How embarrassingly unaware NT scholarship is of it.

Our discipline should really, really be ashamed.

It makes me want to be a linguist rather than a Biblical scholar.

Oh wait. That’s what I am.
