Re: Why does apeiros take genitive

Hello Stirling Bartholomew and all, Thank you. Perhaps I was not being clear. I was not making judgments, but just stating what my intuition led me to. I know it is correct to use the genitive. I am just wondering what kind of genitive it is, such as genitive of reference, ablative, etc. and the und...

Why does apeiros take genitive

Greetings, I am wondering why apeiros takes the genitive of a thing. What kind of genitive is it, objective?

If I understand correctly, I believe you are saying a more literal translation is: "I omitted not one of the advantageous aspects so as to avoid (i.e. in order not to be) setting forth my message and explaining (them) to you in public as well as privately." This ...
