The Future in Greek

Theodore Markopoulos

Oxford University Press

This bulky chapter is devoted to the examination of Late Medieval Greek (11th–15th c. AD), the first period after late antiquity which provides us with material in a “vernacular” variety of Greek. The investigation, based on both literary and non‐literary sources, gives new insights into a great variety of issues, such as the semantic development of the μέλλω AVC—illustrated here for the first time. The much discussed and debated “θέ νά” construction is investigated at length, and a new account of its development is proposed, partly based on language contact between Greek‐ and Romance‐speaking populations, a largely unexplored issue.

Keywords:   conditionals, finite complementation, impersonal constructions, language contact, non‐literary texts, phonological change, pluperfect, Romance languages, sociolinguistic specialization, split, V+VS pattern, vernacular
