There’s a detailed review of the Greek Verb Revisited on Amazon. It’s exciting to see the positive response the volume is getting.
Of course, I disagree with a few of his points across a variety of the chapters (including my own), but that should be unsurprising. It’s a big book with plenty of room for discussion. I certainly don’t think the fact that negation scope lacks morphological or syntactic marking is even remotely problematic, but then, that probably goes without saying since I made it the centerpiece of my work. It’s one of those places where you’d love to sit down with the person giving the review and just ask them questions to get a sense of their reasoning.
Still, receiving such a detailed review so quickly after the book’s release is satisfying. The review is definitely worth a read. If anyone else has any thoughts about it, I’d love to get a discussion going.
I could have sworn that I had mentioned Lars Nordgren’s book, Greek Interjections Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics at some point before, but apparently not. I can’t find the post. In any case, his book received a detailed review in the latest issue of the Bryn Mawr Classical Review by Coulter George:
Nordgren’s book is, of course, expensive on Amazon (here), though with all such monographs, patient waiting can often land you a reasonably priced copy–I picked one up about a year ago.
The author has a academia.edu page, as well, but he has not uploaded any papers.
