Re: Relative or dependent clause?

I suppose the issue is whether a relative pronoun, or more precisely a prepositional phrase with a relative pronoun object, can be governed by a participle rather than a finite verb. I can't find any discussion in the grammars on this. Of course it can, and there are plenty of examples throughout G...

Re: 1 Tim 1:7 - μὴ... μήτε

I think my issue with how this verse is rendered in English is that μὴ νοοῦντες doesn't seem to be as explicit the in governing the two following negations. The example in Mt 5:34 seems to be a good parallel. It is clear μὴ ὀμόσαι ὅλως is then further explained by the two parallel negations. So wou...

It seems to me that if this was to say "not knowing what they are talking about" it would simply be μὴ νοοῦντες λέγουσιν.
No, that would mean "not understanding they say"; you want μὴ νοοῦντες ἃ λέγουσιν for "not understanding what they are saying"

Re: Subtle differences between paired Greek words

All of these seem fruitful for a proper lexical study. I don't know if any have been done.

(Some of your examples seem to involve homonymity in the English glosses, however.)

Re: εθελω vs θελω

The initial ἐ- of ἔθελω is not an augment but actually original (see the Attic form). In some Ionic dialects, this verb lost its initial vowel.

Re: Interpreting "ὑπερεντυγχάνει" and "ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ" in Romans 8?

There could be word play here. Beyond appreciating it as a reader, rendering it into the English is more of an issue for the translator and translation technique / philosophy. That said, translating ὑπερεντυγχάνει as "intercedes" and as ἐντυγχάνει ὑπέρ "falls in between" doesn't really exploit the w...

Re: Interpreting "ὑπερεντυγχάνει" and "ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ" in Romans 8?

Go with what the lexicons say. They document what the words mean in usage and that's what you need to be faithful to. Compound words, especially those used with any frequency, take on a life of their after coinage, and so there is no benefit to preserving the feel of a compound word that has moved o...

Re: Introduction and question about databases.

There are (or used to be) some general purpose citation databases for the humanities, but I haven't looked at them in over twenty years and can't remember their name. ATLA doesn't have this feature as far as I aware. And, unlike the sciences, scholars in the humanities are not evaluated on their cit...
