On the construction of HAVE with passive perfect participle in Greek and Latin

Klaas Bentein UGent (2011) ERANOS. 106. p.65-76
abstract
In this article, I discuss the origins of periphrastic ἔχω with passive perfect participle, and its relationship with the structurally similar Latin construction of habeo with passive perfect participle. After critically reviewing four hypotheses brought forward in the secondary literature, I conclude that both HAVE-perfects must be considered independent developments, originating from a common syntactic pattern HAVE + object + predicate. I furthermore argue that we should strictly distinguish between ἔχω with passive perfect participle and ἔχω with active/middle aorist participle, the two constructions being diachronically unrelated and functionally dissimilar.
