Thanks, Robert. I was thinking more specifically of bookse introducing the generative minimalist approach you took for the database and especially those that would perhaps compare and contrast this to the more typical (in NT studies, anyway) functional and/or systemic approach.
Oy -- this is the harder part of your question (which I did recognize, but wanted a bit more time to think it over).
Radford's and Carnie's textbooks are both good introductions to generative syntax. Radford's presents just minimalism, where Carnie includes other generative frameworks (HPSG, LFG, etc.). Cedric Boeckx's introduction to minimalism is also quite readable:
Boeckx, Cedric. 2006. Linguistic Minimalism: Origins, Concepts, Methods, and Aims. Oxford: Oxford Univeristy Press.
And the articles in Baltin and Collins, especially the nice overview of phrase structure by Fukui are helpful:
Baltin, Mark, and Chris Collins, eds. 2001. The Handbook of Contemporary Syntactic Theory. Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics. Oxford: Blackwell.
Fukui, Naoki. 2001. Phrase Structure. Pp. 374-406 in The Handbook of Contemporary Syntactic Theory, ed. M. Baltin and C. Collins. Oxford: Blackwell.
The real two-fold challenge of your question, though, is this: 1) it is hard for me to identify specific resources that influenced the tagging scheme because I've been reading in formal syntax for nearly 15 years; and 2) there has been so little generative work on NT Greek that the contrastive works don't even exist. So, I'll simply list the 5 or so most influential works on my own approach over the last 10+ years (with the caveat that my "principles" essay -- on my blog and cross-refenced here in the Forum -- makes it clear that our tagging project is not a full-blown minimalist product):
All works by N. Chomsky
Botha, Rudolf P. 1989. Challenging Chomsky: The Generative Garden Game. Oxford: Basil Blackwell.
McGilvray, James A. 1999. Chomsky: Language, Mind, and Politics. Cambridge: Blackwell.
Most works by Frederick Newmeyer, but especially:
Newmeyer, Frederick J. 1998. Language Form and Language Function. Language, speech, and communication. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.
———. 2003. Grammar is Grammar and Usage is Usage. Language 79 (4):682-707.
———. 2004. Typological Evidence and Universal Grammar. Studies in Language 28 (3):527-48.
———. 2005. Possible and Probable Languages: A Generative Perspective on Linguistic Typology. Oxford: Oxford University Press.
The Hebrew-specific work by Edit Doron and Ur Shlonsky.
Again, let me know if you have any more specific questions.
