AL5323 - Discourse Features of New Testament Greek
(TBA) (3 graduate credits)
After completing this course, students will have applied methods for studying grammar at the discourse level to New Testament Greek texts. They will be able to describe discourse features of New Testament Greek in at least three of the following areas: theme, deixis (participant reference), coherence and cohesion; information structure (new and old information, backgrounding and foregrounding), and highlighting (contrast, prominence, and emphasis), and forms of quoted speech. They will also have used computer-based tools in studying the discourse structure of New Testament Greek texts.
