Once a month from January 2019, the EVWRIT team will meet to discuss and develop a new theoretical perspective towards communication practices in Antiquity.
Theoretical sessions on fundamental aspects of novel methodologies (cognitive sociolinguistics, social semiotics, paléographie signifiante…) will be interchanged with practical ones (doing statistics, showing a database, presenting a paper…).
The reading group is open to anyone interested.
In this session of the reading group, we will discuss conditionals in Greek. The moderator for this session is Ezra La Roi. The recommended literature for this session is the following:
- Wakker 1994 on the diachronic relationship between conditionals and wishes (English)
- Lombardi Vallauri 2005 on the use of subordinate clauses as main clauses in oral language (Italian)
- Boogaart 2013 on the different pragmatic functions of independently used subordinate clauses (Dutch)
The session will be held in English.
For further questions or remarks, contact Ezra La Roi at email@example.com.
