Abstract

This project analyses counterfactual constructions in the history of Ancient Greek (from Archaic to Post-Classical). These counterfactuals are largely unstudied and more diverse in types than analysed before in linguistics. Previous research has yielded premature generalizations on the nature and evolution of counterfactuals. Therefore I will develop a quantifiable context-sensitive evolutionary model to provide an enriched diachronic typology of counterfactuals.
