Koine-Greek.com is a space online for discussions of linguistics and especially Ancient Greek grammar. Most of the time, we are interested in the Koine period of the language from roughly 200 BCE to 300 CE. Our goal is to make technical linguistics research accessible and available for students and scholars of Ancient Greek.
Theoretically, we are primarily interested in theories that are cognitively & typologically robust as well as those designed particularly for descriptive grammar writing. However, we are experienced in a wide variety of theoretical approaches.
Mike Aubrey specializes applied linguistics, historical linguistics, West Coast Functional theories of language, and verbal semantics. The majority of his research is in Hellenistic and Koine Greek. He is also the Greek Languages and Linguistics Moderator for the B-Greek forums.
Rachel Aubrey specializes in cognitive linguistics, Role and Reference Grammar, metaphor theory, and historical linguistics. She is particularly interested in grammatical voice systems and polysemy.
The majority of what is written here consists of initial drafts of various thoughts on a number of topics related to Hellenistic Greek. Most of it relates to books, whether books just read or books to be read. Very little that gets posted here is thoroughly edited, though often times posts get polished up after the fact. Others fall by the wayside. And still more bits revised on the way to publication, though those changes and corrections tend not to take place here.
