In this paper the authors discuss three types of adjectival participles in Greek, ending in -tos and -menos, and provide a further argument for the view that finer distinctions are necessary in the domain of participles (Kratzer 2001, Embick 2004). They further compare Greek stative participles to their German (and English) counterparts. The authors propose that a number of semantic as well as syntactic differences derive from differences in their respective morpho-syntactic composition.
