I want to go deeper into the study of sentences and clauses. My level Greek is basic-intermediate (two years of Greek in seminary). What is the best resource and why?

Thank you.

P.D. The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Bundle (6 vols.) is a good choice?

For this I think you want the Syntax databases that were introduced in Libronix 3.0.  All have their little quirks, but Opentext is a good start.

If syntax analysis is indeed your goal, discourse (techniques of emphasizing meaning) is typically one level ABOVE syntax (methods of conveying meaning) .So, though the discourse bundle is good, it won't likely get you what you want.

If you want to do down and dirty syntax analysis, any of the 3 syntax resources (Lexham, OpenText or Cascadia) would get you the basic tool. After that, you'd do best exploring the syntax videos that use the Logos syntax databases, since comparison across different texts for a writer best illustrates what you're looking for.

I believe that you would at least need the original lnguage base package.

My goal is learn discourse (techniques of emphasizing meaning)  about. So I thought about buying The Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Bundle (6 vols.) but before we look into each resource suggested.

Your contribution has been invaluable.

Thank you!!
