Quasi: Its Grecizing (?) syntactic patterns

Hannah Rosén, Donna Shalev

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study of two syntactic patterns (quasi + predicative future participles and quasi introducing actantial clauses) delineates the process through which they evolve, centering around juridical texts and drawing also on translated texts. The question of the Greek genesis of each of these two constructions is examined with special consideration of the distinct constraints for Lat. quasi vis-à-vis those for Gr. leading to disparate answers fir each.
