Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an end note of the author. C.H. Turner's "Notes on Marcan Usage" do not in any way exhaust the features of Mark's grammar and style that may be found within that Gospel. The distinctiveness of the evangelist's Greek has encouraged others to investigate his language. Sir John Hawkins listed words and phrases characteristic of each of the Synoptic Gospels and also provided statistics hearing on the origin and composition of each Gospel. Among the latter are details about the historic present in Mark, on his use of particles and instances of anacolouthon and asyndeton. Since Turner's day many other studies, grammars, lexicons and commentaries on Mark have continued along his path, sometimes with acknowledgements to his "Notes".

Keywords: anacolouthon; asyndeton; C.H. Turner; Mark's grammar; Notes on Marcan Usage; Sir John Hawkins; Synoptic Gospels
