Call For Papers:

The Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics Section will host three sessions at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature.

We are sponsoring a thematic session on "Discourse Markers," with invited papers.

Together with the Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages Group, we are also co-sponsoring a joint thematic session on Greek phonology and pronunciation, with invited papers.

The third session is open to any presentation dealing broadly with the application of linguistics to the biblical Greek Language, consistent with the description of the Section.

All submissions are welcome. Students without a doctoral degree are required to submit the full text of the paper they will read at the time of submission.
