|Title:||The Markedness of Oιδa: A Discourse Analysis of 1 John|
|Abstract:||<p> By applying discourse analysis, this study first provides an analysis of the distribution of oiδa as well as other lexical choices from the same semantic domain as oiδa in 1 John. After that, the patterns of oiδa are compared with the patterns of the non-perfect tense forms of the choices from the same semantic domain to determine a correspondence. By comparing the results, this study demonstrates that oiδa, in opposition, is chosen in places in the discourse that are relatively more prominent than places in which the non-perfect tense forms of the other lexical items from the same semantic domain were chosen. It then demonstrates the plausibility that oioa is a marked form. Thus, this study shows that oiδa is a viable perfect through a study of the motivated choices of o'toa as opposed to other verbs in the same semantic domain in the discourse of 1 John. </p>|
