Re: The Peculiar Compound Non-postpositive Hapax μενοῦν in Luke 11:28

Thanks for your considered challenges. I see now that I did not differentiate between the absolute postpositive rule and another proposed rule that I will call the contemporary rule. The absolute postpositive rule is about the initial position of postpositive lexemes in their phrase, not about μενοῦ...

Re: The Peculiar Compound Non-postpositive Hapax μενοῦν in Luke 11:28

I don’t think there is a semantic difference between μενοῦν and μενοῦνγε because I think μενοῦν was μενοῦνγε in the original. The post is about text editing principles, not about compounding or the Byzantine. Even though Bauer and LSJ and Moulton and Milligan give an entry for the compound μενοῦν, t...

Why does the critical text compound the hapax μενοῦν in Luke 11:28 when all 39 instances of μὲν οὖν are not compounded? The editors compound it because μενοῦν is initial in this clause while the 39 instances o...

Re: John 1:12 case of τέκνα

Predicate complements of the infinitive are nominative if they have the same subject as the head verb of the infinitive, and the infinitive lacks an explicit accusative subject. Otherwise, if the infinitive h...

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

The restriction of adverbial participles to nominative apparently attempts to impose an arbitrarily simplistic terminology on a more complex reality. Here is a partial list of GNT oblique circumstantial participles: MT 8:23, MT21:23, MK 16:12, MK16:14, LK 1:3, LK17:7, AC 3:12,AC16:37, AC20:3, AC23:1...
