Steve Runge, a scholar-in-residence here at Logos and author of the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament, the High Definition New Testament, and the forthcoming Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament: A Practical Introduction to Discourse Features for Teaching and Exegesis has contributed to the blog here on several occasions.
But he has a lot more to say about discourse grammar, his area of expertise, so he’s decided to start his own blog, NT Discourse. His stated goal is to remove the mystery from discourse grammar. If it’s still a mystery to you, you might want to give it a read.
Steve’s hit the blogging ground running, and has been averaging about five posts per week. Here’s a sampling of the kinds of things he’s been discussing:
- Intro to near/far distinctions
- Structuring information
- Meta-comment: Gal 1:9
- Choice and meaning
- The many faces of ‘this’, part 3
- The many faces of ‘this’, part 2
- The many faces of ‘this’, part 1
- Which “if” is it? Semantic meaning versus pragmatic effect
- Introduction to Meta-comments
If you’ve purchased the LDGNT or the HDNT and are looking for some help learning how to put them to good use, you’ll definitely want to check out Steve’s new blog. You RSS folks can grab his newly burned FeedBurner feed.
Even if you’re not into discourse grammar, you won’t want to miss Steve and his dog singing a duet!
