Re: More flashcards?

If you memorize all the terms that occur 10 times or more in the GNT, you will be able to read over 90% of the GNT at sight. Use Bruce Metzger's book that lists words in terms of frequency.

Of course, you will also need to memorize the principle parts of all the irregular Greek verbs.

Re: Cremer's Lexicon

Cremer's lexicon was at the cutting edge when it was first published. In many ways it4 was the model ffor the later 10 volume TDNT. But like Thayer, it is also now dated, ante-dating the use of papyri and inscriptions for understanding the significance of Greek terms. BGAG is far superior--though ii...

Re: Who does their main bible reading in Greek?

I read the NT in Greek all the time; I rarely open any English translation. After all, one can read 90% of the NT at sight if one knows all the words that occur 10 or more times in the NT. [Of course it presumes that you also know the principal parts of irregular verbs.] It's a goal that any serious...

Re: Determining Which Version a Greek Text Belongs

Please use correct language. Version should not be used of different editions of the Greek NT, since version by definition means a translation. The Vulgate is a version, Aland’s Greek NT is an edition etc.

Re: Conjunctions

The most complete discussion of conjunctions is in John Dewar Denniston's Greek Particles. Oxford University Press. It is a really outstanding piece of work.

Re: Simple question on the 28th Nestle-Aland Greek NT

Here is a response about Aland ed 28. 1. The new addition adds the readings of Papyri 117-128. 2. The apparatus now omits all conjectures--though with some reluctance. 3. The text of the catholic epistles has been revised on the basis of the Editio critica maiora, i.e. the 28th ed. here is now the e...

Re: Adjectival Use of Prepositional Phrases

Is it not possible that Paul is using a rhetorical device called syntaxis apo koinou in which the phrase is to be understood with both of the possible associated terms?

Dionysios Thrax

Some time ago someone said that the ancient Grammarian Dionysios Thrax was later than the first century B.C. All the sources I have for classical Greek date his grammar to the first century (OCD 3rd ed., Der Kleine Pauly, etc.). I would appreciate the bibliography that gives the evidence for the lat...
