Wallace, Runge, Decker, and Conrad Talk Greek

If you enjoy Greek grammar and linguistics, you’ll definitely want to read the fascinating discussion that’s been taking place over on Steve Runge’s blog, NT Discourse.

Steve’s post Markedness, Part 2 is what got things going. Rod Decker, Daniel Wallace, and Steve had a profitable three-way exchange in the comments.

Steve followed up with a second post What does ‘syntactic force’ mean? The back and forth continued in the comments with Carl Conrad (of the B-Greek list), Daniel Wallace, and Steve.

While Steve’s perspective is on the surface quite a bit different from the way Greek is taught in most Bible colleges and seminaries, there is actually significant agreement between well-respected Greek grammarians like Wallace, Conrad, and Decker and Steve.

Wallace, whose Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics has been used by tens of thousands of Greek students, sums it up well when he says, “It shows that we [grammarians and linguists] can cooperate in these projects and learn from each other. I believe that both sides have much to offer.”

If you’re interested in Greek studies and where they are going, be sure to read the dialog.
