Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

The default B-Greek font that displays on my tablet obscures the distinction as to whether an an acute or a stress marker is in the text.

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

Whatever new initiative to remove the oxia are taken, there will always be a body of legacy texts that do not conform to the new standard. Standardisation is one option. Another option is catering for the diversity in some ways, like you currently need to cater for when some words carry an accent fr...

Re: Romans 3:12 - Substantival Participle

Hi Robert, This looks like a place where knowing Greek might go some way towards clarifying the rather vague word "good" that seems to carry over from bonus into English translations. Aside from context-cotext or others exegesical techniques that one could bring to the passage, from a linguistic poi...

Re: ὄνομά μοι ... τὸ ὄνομά μου

πηλίκος ἦσθ᾽ ὅθ᾽ ὁ Μῆδος ἀφίκετο; LSJ gives the meaning for πηλίκος as "how great" or "how large," which leads me to think that πηλίκος εἶ; is similar to how we ask a child "so, how big are you now?" expecting them to respond with their age ("I'm this big!" or "I'm this many!" holding up three fing...
