Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I received Dickey's book yesterday. I'll try to participate, though some weeks may be hard. The GreekStudy group had an email collation software for this type of class participation. I ran a couple of groups there. I also ran a group on Greek composition, using Moodle, where we used assignment submi...

Re: Adding accents

I was wondering if anyone is actually teaching the rising and falling of the polytonic accents, or does everyone simply teach them as stress accents? Steven Daitz teaches rising and falling tones for Restored Attic Greek. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxc03F-vhw8 (starting about 34:20 in the ...

Re: R. W. Funk and the two different structuralisms

So how did Funk's theory of language make Funk's BIGHG different from Smyth, BDF, Robertson and more modern authors such as Porter, Rijksbaron, Runge, etc. Did Funk's theory and influence continue? (I think Funk is close to Goetchius at least in his approach to presentation). Can we see some solid e...

Re: Tmesis - possible or not with -εῖναι based verbs?

We need to define the term "tmesis" for our members. tmesis. n. The separation of the parts of a *compound word by intervening words.(DeMoss, Pocket Dictionary for the study of New Testament Greek). Smyth: §1650. Tmesis (τμῆσις cutting) denotes the separation of a preposition from its verb, and is a...

Re: Are there grounds for taking εἶδον as imperative in Rev.

Probably not. You are suggesting the 2nd aorist is taking a first aorist ending. The pattern is Καὶ εἶδον... 6.1 Καὶ εἶδον ...6.2 Καὶ εἶδον ... 6.5 ...καὶ εἶδον 6.8 καὶ εἶδον 6.9 εἶδον 6.12 καὶ εἶδον

Re: What a difference a δή makes!

I have struggled with δη over the last few years in regards to composition. Does it follow or precede? It it used with nouns/verbs/infinitives/imperatives? What is the pattern that is dominant? Obviously, δη is an emotive particle. Denniston's Greek Particles discusses δη on pages 203-262. δη does o...

Re: What a difference a δή makes!

Perhaps a look at Epictetus' use of particles could be helpful here. Arrian is the author of Epictetus' Discourses (written in Koine) and the author of The Anabasis of Alexander (written in restored Attic). Arrian (Αρριανός) was a native Greek speaker, so there would be no non-native speaker influen...
