Project: A functional-pragmatic analysis of the discourse markers gar, oun and de in homilies of Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus and John Chrysostom.

01/10/13 – 31/08/17

In this project, the Ancient Greek particles gar, oun and de are reinterpreted according to modern pragmatic theories. The last systematic analysis of these elements dates from the 1950s; in this project, they are reanalyzed as discourse markers - they do not contribute to the content of the text, but instead guide the audience towards the correct interpretation of that context.
