Re: Need a lookup from the first edition of Bauer's Wörterbuch

Yes, but that's not the issue. The issue is that these active-voice occurrences are classified under a middle-voice heading. I think that is the issue. If you look at the head of the entry (I'm quoting from the 2d ed. BAGD), it says: "the 2 pf. ἀπόλωλα serves as a pf. mid., ptc.ἀπολωλώς." I think t...

Re: Croy 1999 vs 2011

The cover is certainly different. My own copy has the olive green 2011 cover, while the older ones have a (bluer) jungle green cover. As for the content, the copyright on mine is 1999. My copy also had a CD-ROM (which I've misplaced), which is probably another difference. The pagination may differ a...

I am currently using this:
1. Τί ὄνομά σοι;
2. Ἰωνάθαν ὄνομά μοι.
That's funny--I answer it completely differently: Στέφανος ὄνομά μοι.

(Uh, I'll show myself out now.)

Re: Logged out every time

Recently, the forum has been logging me off fairly frequently. Especially frustrating is to be logged in, check "active topics", only to have it log me out. (The problem seems worse with the "www.*" URL.) Until the last week or two, it had been working fine.

Re: ἰάομαι Why middle?

Rutger Allan's dissertation on the middle voice has this to say about it: Assuming that the original meaning of ἀκέομαι was 'mend, repair', the middle inflection can be explained by the fact that you generally repair something for your own benefit. The middle inflection of the near-synonymous ἰάομαι...

Re: absolute grammaticalization of aspect

Matthewson is part of the Porter school, and--unless I'm missing something--I don't really see him doing much other than restating Porter's views and applying them to Revelation. And, yes, arguments over this framework are often over differing presuppositions.

Re: ἀλλὰ in the apodosis - memory of the dead

With conditionals, I think there are actually two different traditional analyses and they are intended to work with Latin as well. I've always disliked the old explanations because they gloss them with 19th century (or earlier) English renderings that seem obsolete in contemporary English.

Re: Idiomatic Use of εστιν?

The phrase appears to be taken from Matthew 23:8 and it is missing the first word. Ὑμεῖς δὲ μὴ κληθῆτε ῥαββί· εἷς γάρ ἐστιν ὑμῶν ὁ διδάσκαλος , πάντες δὲ ὑμεῖς ἀδελφοί ἐστε. As for the translation, it is not appear that Duff is being word-for-word literal, but what's the deep difference between, e.g...
