Research Interests

Apart from Greek lexicography in theory and practice, Patrick's primary research interest is post-Classical and Koine Greek from historical and socio-linguistic perspectives (his doctoral research examined the syntax of participles and infinitives) and the linguistic evidence of papyri, ostraca, inscriptions, Atticist grammarians and writers, the New Testament, and Greek translations of the Hebrew Bible.
