Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses which factors determine the presence or absence of the article before the various Ancient Greek noun phrase (NP) constituents and what exactly these 'articles' mark. It first tries to answer the question of what determines the difference between the articular modifiers and the non-articular ones. After an overview of the existing theories on the articulation of modifiers, the chapter presents an alternative solution based on the analysis of the definite NPs in the author's corpus. It then examines the nature of the factor that influences the articulation of the noun by analyzing the difference between the aNaX and NaX pattern. The chapter, subsequently, provides an overview of the rules for the articulation of the noun plus a possible explanation for these rules.

Keywords: Ancient Greek; articulation of modifiers; noun phrase (NP) constituents
