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 approach to language structure 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.
