About this product
- DescriptionThe use in Classical Greek of the two negatives, ov and un, in un phrases is a much-debated matter in the literature on Greek grammar. Several, sometimes interrelated, factors have been adduced as decisive for the choice of negative in such cases - the predominant one being that of reference. Already a brief survey of almost any Greek text, however shows that there is a considerable overlap between the employment of ov and un in the uses which the grammarians distinguish. The present study investigates in a consequent fashion the use of the two negatives in un phrases in the works of Plato. A new picture of negation in Greek un phrases is thus gradually built up, where the interplay between ov and un in such cases is described in a more consistent way than by the earlier accounts.
- Author BiographyThe Author. Eva-Carin Geroe received her doctoral degree at the University of Tuebingen in 1996. She is presently working on various other topics in Greek grammar - again with a focus on semantics.
