Many of our readers are likely familiar with another excellent, but no longer available, blog: Old School Script. Chris Fresch, one of our contributors here, joined us from OSS. We have also added the site’s other writer, Kris Lyle, as an author and welcome any contribution or discussion that he might consider making to our humble abode.
OSS closed it doors in 2017 and since then, its delightful essays on Greek, Hebrew, linguistics, and theology have been absent from the world. But no longer. We are excited to announce that we are working on integrating the many excellent essays and blog posts from there into this site.
- That includes the Scholars in Press interviews series, which both Rachel and my self participated in–and perhaps we will also continue those interviews going forward.
- The new Hebrew Corner page (above) will slowly be filled with some of OSS excellent Hebrew content, as well as, (hopefully) some new discussion as well.
- The numerous essays on cognitive linguistic topics, lexical semantics, quantitative methodology, etc. will all be showing up here.
Currently, we’re working on figuring out the best way to go about this. There’s a significant amount of material to go through and organize at the moment. We certainly do not want to simply dump it all at once in such a way that the all gems get lost in the pile.
As plans are solidified for how we roll out this content, you can expect to enjoy a wide variety of lovely reading.
We’re looking toward 2019 and have exciting plans for the future of Koine-Greek.com.
- First up is the addition of a few more contributors to the site.
- In conjunction to that, we’re considering adding a Hebrew language corner, though the primary focus will continue to be Greek.
- We’re hopefully going to have more book reviews
- We want to expand the number of longform and multi-part essays, too.
In December, we will have more discussion of where we are headed and we will probably be looking for feedback as well.
Stay tuned for more details.

I don’t think I’ll have time for posting this week, so I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
I have two or three posts on the burner that should be finished fairly soon after Christmas, though, so you can expect some more reading soon.
One post will be my comments & response to Dan Wallace’s post, Lexical Fallacies by Linguists [supposed fallacies–I would say].
The other is my second & final post (the first one here: Challenges in language analysis) providing some context for why my thesis is the way it is. There will be a like to the PDF available in that post, too.
