The General Philology Group (GPG) is a forum for the discussion of philological problems in languages other than Chinese, with emphasis at present on the New Testament.
The GPG message archive contains the entire conversation to date, for convenient consultation by both current and new members. Drafts or published papers can also be uploaded to the archive site, for discussion and comment by list members.
To maintain a fully functional conversation, GPG is normally limited to 12 menbers. Normal expectations of scholarly civility, and the scrupulous treatment of posted material, will apply. See the List Protocol page.
GPG uses the same basic methodology guidelines that govern the Project's work in the Warring States period. Its focus is historical. It is understood that faith-based arguments, or those designed chiefly to protect some point of later Church doctrine or Classical scholarly orthodoxy, or arguments for relevance to some issue in our contemporary world, fall outside the intended scope of the investigation.
To apply to the GPG list, contact the Project, giving a paragraph of self-introduction which will be used to announce the new member to the old members. Then visit the archive page of GPG. Click on "Join This Group," and follow the instructions there provided. Remember that as part of the process you must either create a Yahoo ID including your "real name," or add your "real name" to your existing Yahoo ID. For detailed instructions, if needed, refer back to the Yahoo ID page.
To the automated message of Welcome which new list members will receive from Yahoo, we here add our own. We hope you find the discussion fruitful, and we look forward to learning from you.
