Re: 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 δὲ vs καὶ

My take, which follows nicely with Steve Runge's report on Levinsohn now preferring the term "point" is that current software applications help us to understand this. Think of PowerPoint slides: και is used sort of like two slides, one is with "Some Title" and the other is "Some Title (cont.)" - e.g...

After looking through Rod Decker's classifications and sub-classifications[1] for participles, Margaret Sim's comments cited in Straub seem to apply somewhat to Decker's analysis. Margaret Sim put the ax to the root of the tree.

Thank you for this Margaret Sim quote, Stirling!

Re: πέμψαντός in J. 6.38?

A lot to soak in here. I have BDF in book form (wish I had the software), but, a bit intense for a (just beginning) Greek II student. Again, I find I have to read each portion slowly & several times to grasp it (& then reread it many times for the concept to sink in fully). Just to clarify - Jonath...

Re: Punctuation of 1 Corinthians 8:6

From a translation point of view, he may be raising a question as to whether to interpret "Θεὸς ὁ Πατήρ" or additionally "κύριος Ἰησοῦς Χριστός" as effectively "titular" references vs. adjectival or attributive constructions. It's an interesting and hard question. Is Jesus' name "Jesus Christ", or i...

Re: Morphology Paradigms

Languages are funny. Languages are funny, and we should be able to have fun with them now and again. I completely agree and hope that I didn't cause too much consternation with re-opening this thread. Randall knows me better than Barry, and is a little more aware of my background. I'm chiefly most ...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

For those of you not familiar with the work going on for the new Perseus reading environment, I'm now expanding this morphological work from the 138k words of the GNT to the 21m words in the Greek corpus of the Perseus digital library. Once you have to deal with dialects and changes over time, it s...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

I wonder how far along James is with this ... I'm a lot further with verbs than nominals but the infrastructure is in place and I can pretty quickly make progress on nominals, especially to serve specific use cases. I haven't looked at this thread in detail, but what sort of annotation are you look...
