Linguistic Descriptions of the Greek New Testament: New Studies in Systemic Functional Linguistics, Library of the New Testament Greek, Volume 1

T&T Clark

Stanley E. Porter provides descriptions of various important topics in Greek linguistics from a Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) perspective; an approach that has been foundational to Porter’s long and influential career in the field of New Testament Greek.

Deep insights into Porter’s understanding of SFL are displayed throughout, based either upon how he positions SFL in relation to other linguistic models, or how he utilizes it to describe topics within Greek and New Testament studies. Porter reflects on his core approach to the Greek New Testament by exploring subjects such as metaphor, rhetoric, cognition, orality and textuality, as well as studies on linguistic schools of thought and traditional grammar.
