“Diachronic Analysis of the Form of the Greek Perfect and its Associated Uses: Arguing for a Complex Verbal Aspect,”
Presented in 2017, at the 13th biennial International Conference on Greek Linguistics, at The University of Westminster, London, UK.

This presentation shows how diachronic development of the Greek Perfect tense-form shows interaction of two verbal aspects combining in a specific way to produce the Perfect usages.  This project provides support for the idea that the Greek Perfect has two verbal aspects, perfective on the action and imperfective on the state.​

“Connecting the Morphology of the Greek Perfect to its Aspectual Properties,”
Presented at the 2017 annual Stone-Campbell Journal Conference, at Johnson University, Knoxville, TN.

This presentation showed how two different morphological components of the synthetic Greek Perfect tense-form have their location in two clines that are developing perfectives and imperfectives respectively.  This project provides support for the idea that the Greek Perfect has two verbal aspects, perfective on the action and imperfective on the state.​

“Reimagining Οἶδα: Indo-European Etymology, Morphology and Semantics Point to its Aspect,”

This presentation showed how I was analyzing the verbal aspect and lexical aspect of this Greek word.  I used morphology, historical linguistics and comparative linguistics to challenge some assumptions regarding this word.
