Linguistic Historiography Updated

If you already follow my blog, you’ve probably already seen it, but just in case…

I’ve added a new entry to my page on the historiography of research on the Greek verb, this time on William Trollope’s New Testament grammar. While Trollope isn’t often cited. He is historically sigificant as the first grammar written in English rather than merely translated, though even then he still views his work as a supplement to the Classical grammar of Philipp Butmann, which I have already surveyed. So he still isn’t the full first Koine grammar in English. That status is held by A. T. Robertson’s big grammar, which I’ll get to in due time.
