Re: Confused about case endings for φῶς

Wow. I didn't understand a word either of you just said. Glad to see I'm not mad in thinking it's unusual though! The basic idea is φῶς was originally a contraction of φάος, which had a more-or-less regular genitive φάους and dative φάει. Yet, when φάος contracted to φῶς, the genitive and dative lo...

Re: δε & και together ex. Titus 3:14

When you see δὲ καί together like that, the καί is adverbial: "but also"

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

PS: the ancients also rejected the theory, preemptively. The ancient grammarians were the ones who came up with the temporal definitions of indicative time, on their own, and as mother-tongue speakers. A citation to that sources would be amazing, if available. Thanks! See here for a discussion of o...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

The thing is: Everyone knew about examples like these before 1989 and everyone knew that there was a coersion of temporal reference in them. Grammars talked about them regularly, but just put them in different categories. The only thing that Porter really did was provide a different explanation for...

It could conceivable done fairly easily with Logos, which has reverse interlinear for most English translations. Still, the data would probably take a few days to wade through.
Sounds like a plus for Logos.

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

For example, were there any verses in the bible that prior to 1990 had always been translated in the past tense, but then, thanks to the new understanding, the translation was updated to a proleptic future aorist? That should be a simple "yes or no" answer, with demonstrable examples if the answer ...

Re: Why not start with modern Greek?

To me, it's usually best to focus on the thing you want to learn and the skills you want to have. I think this basically right. There are spillover effects from learning any related language (e.g., learning Swedish allowed me to understand written but not spoken Danish), but it seems to me that lea...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

It's a little more complicated than that. There are aorists that are past/complete with respect to some (implied) future perspective point.
