Re: Merism ? Metonymy ? Synedoche ?

Thanx Stephen. I had read that LSJ section before I posted actually, but I get what you're saying. Makes sense.

Thx

Merism ? Metonymy ? Synedoche ?

Hi ya, In this sentence in Josephus, in a bit which I found a bit of a challenge, one finds this: “πρῶτον τῆς ἐπιστολῆς τοὺς περὶ τὸν Ἰωνάθην ὑπεμίμνησκον, ὃν τρόπον γράψειαν ὑπὸ τοῦ κοινοῦ τῶν Ἱεροσολυμιτῶν πεπέμφθαι διαλύσοντές μου τὰς πρὸς τὸν Ἰωάννην φιλονεικίας, ὡς παρακαλέσειάν τέ με πρὸς αὐτο...

Re: Does the Didache say αφες ημιν την οφειλην ημων (Forgive us Our Debts) or is the phrase missing?

The edition I have edited by Michael Holmes has it : “καὶ ἄφες ἡμῖν τὴν ὀφειλὴν ἡμῶν, ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφίεμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν,” (Didache 8:2 Apostolic Fathers (Greek tagged text)) https://accordance.bible/link/read/AF-T#Did._8:2 Lightfoot's says the same. Holme's claims to note almost all differen...

Re: In 2 Corinthians 5:1 might αἰώνιον be about the location?

I probably rambled a little much - I tend to write out as I think and that can leave unhelpful detritus in the way. I wouldn't translate it that way. The grammar is clear enough - it's an adjectival (and appositional) construction not an adverbial one.

Re: In 2 Corinthians 5:1 might αἰώνιον be about the location?

Well ... that would be to treat the adjective as an adverb. Not the worst thing for sure, changes of part of speech occur frequently enough in translation but there is no call for it here really. And semantically here not a great difference : If the building is eternal and it's in the heavens the ef...

Re: "the monosemic nature of discourse markers"

Good point Stirling, I misapplied the term monosemy pretty horrendously there and clearly need to go back and re-read some things to ensure I use the terms correctly. Thanks for flagging that, it would seem like the concept of "use it or lose it" has applied to me here - opportunity to learn again ...

Re: English-greek lexicon!?

The other thing is that with software available these days you can look up English glosses, and thus work backwards.
Not quite the same thing granted but it works. Incidentally Ben Kantor has such a thing up online too : https://www.koinegreek.com/koine-greek-dictionary

Re: Complete Josephus

I've not used Logos in a number of years - maybe since 6. But it was always the free version - wasn't going to buy into two top of the line solutions if I could help it. Though I would like the discourse NT, and perhaps the cascadia syntax. Anyhow, as an experiment I downloaded Logos 8 Basic (and re...

Re: No Greek words beginning with σλ-?

One other thought occurred. It's worth looking at *σλ* forms and see where the letters fall. It appears the blend itself may not exist in Greek. I'm no phonologist but it appears the σ marks the end of a syllable, and the λ the beginning of the next where they are adjacent, at least in main.
