Dr Robert Crellin

Temporary Research Associate, Greek Lexicon Project


Research Interests

Robert's research interests include the history and structure of the Greek language, especially in terms of its verb system (his doctoral thesis investigated the syntax and semantics of the Greek perfect active in literary Koine), prepositions, and the linguistics of the New Testament. Robert is also interested in the linguistics of early Bible translations, especially as a means both of accessing how the syntax and semantics of Greek were understood in antiquity, and comparing the manifestation of syntactic and semantic categories across a number of ancient languages.
