Eimi and the adjectival participle in ancient Greek

Klaas Bentein UGent (2011) Proceedings of the sixth Cambridge postgraduate conference in language research.
abstract
In this paper, I discuss constructions of the Ancient Greek verb eimi “I am” with present and perfect participle. I focus on those uses where the participle has a so-called „adjectival‟ function. The two main goals are: (a) to give a unified semantic description of this phenomenon, and (b) to clarify whether the adjectival participle is also categorially adjectival. I argue that adjectival periphrasis typically involves the predication of properties, and that the constructions under analysis should be located on an intracategorial continuum.
