Chapter Summary

By "morphology" is understood the descriptive analysis of the systematic correlations of form and meaning that may be present in the vocabulary of a language. Koine-Greek (like Classical and Modern Greek) is a language in which many of such corresponding series exist. The differences in form are correlated with differences in the total meaning of the words, termed "categorial values" or "values" for short. The form differences are correlated with differences in syntactical combinability or "valence" These form-differences occur in combination with the kinds discussed so-far, but are distinct from them by not being correlated either with differences in value or with differences in syntactical valence. There have been developed several techniques and methods for the analysis of systematic form differences: the I-A method (from: item and arrangement), the I-P method (from: item and process) and the W-P method (from: word paradigm).

Keywords: categorial values; Koine-Greek; morphology; syntactical valence; vocabulary
