Re: Use B-Greek for Dickey's composition book?

I've proposed something in the Staff Forum. We'll get back on this soon. Jason proposed that we start this off with a thread or two and make sure it has momentum before creating a sub-forum. I agree. Also: Dickey's book is not easy. Plan on going slow. People may move at different rates. Just be aw...

Re: Verbless clauses

I am reading through Luke again at the moment and in Luke 4:18 it reads πνεῦμα κυρίου ἐπʼ ἐμὲ οὗ εἵνεκεν ἔχρισέν με εὐαγγελίσασθαι πτωχοῖς, ἀπέσταλκέν με,⸆ κηρύξαι αἰχμαλώτοις ἄφεσιν καὶ τυφλοῖς ἀνάβλεψιν, ἀποστεῖλαι τεθραυσμένους ἐν ἀφέσει, I have highlighted the first clause which I would classif...

Re: Romans 10:10 and impersonal "passives"

How could you know what it is that you do not yet know? There's no harm in learning something this way. Hey Jonathan, I was more thinking that this should be my default position, given that I am self-taught I should probably be less confident in my assertions. Certainly not a bad thing, I learn a l...

Time for me to admit I am out of my depth, something I should do more regularly before typing.

Re: Information structure and adjectives

In general, I suspect that a discourse account for adjectives that come after a noun make more sense than the traditional account of 2nd Attributive position. I am on extremely thin ice here - this is a guess, not informed opinion - but let me throw this out and see what people think. I'll use examp...

Re: Information structure and adjectives

First, let me confess that I am on very thin ice answering this. I am still not as deep into discourse and information flow as I want to become, even though I now work for an organization where many people are very deep into this. I think you have to pick a school to follow. Levinsohn / Runge is a v...

Mike Aubrey on the Greek Perfect

This is one of the most convincing talks I have heard on the Greek perfect. Mike presented this at the SEBTS conference about a month ago. Lots of data, carefully arranged to make a compelling case.

Re: Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek

So far, I really like it a lot. The explanations are clear and simple, with lots of examples, and the examples show enough narrative to give a feel for how the grammatical structures affect the overall flow of a text. The examples are translated in a way that makes the book accessible even for those...
