In this article, I discuss the use and absence of the modal particle (MP) ἄν and κεν in Iliad 24. In part 1 I first discuss the etymology of the two modal particles in Greek, give an overview of the previous explanations for their use and absence and discuss these theories critically, and then determine the corpus of forms where the particles did and did not occur.

Abstract

In this article, I discuss the use and absence of the modal particle (MP) ἄν and κεν in Iliad 24. In part 1 I first discuss the etymology of the two modal particles in Greek, give an overview of the previous explanations for their use and absence and discuss these theories critically, and then determine the corpus of forms where the particles did and did not occur.
