Re: pronunciation difference between η and ει

The modern Greek,pronunciation is called iotacism. Ai, Ei, oi, I, ETA, are all pronounced the same. It makes learning correct spelling difficult for beginners in the Greek language. That is why in teaching beginning Greek I did not use this modern Greek pronunciation, though I taught students about...

Re: Coining a phrase

I had wondered if what I said might be interpreted as something like 'scholastic questions'. So I can imagine things like ἐρωτήματα διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτηματα ἐν [τῷ] διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτἠματα σχολῇ ἐρωτήματα ἐν [τῇ] σχολῇ or the verbal forms as Jason proposed τὰ ἐν τῷ διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτώμενα would all be int...

Re: Coining a phrase

Δανιήλ, χαῖρε. 1. Is the verbal phrasing to be preferred ? Is it more Greek ? might well be and I had considered doing something similar It's not really verbal. It's a participle, which is certainly very common. I would think that this would be a better expression. Maybe others should chime in on t...

Re: Coining a phrase

Woodhouse gives τὸ διδασκαλεῖον for "school."

τὰ ἐν τῷ διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτώμενα - "things asked in the school"

What do you think?

I'm not a philologist, neither a scholar, just a reader.
I'm in the same position. Not a scholar, but I enjoy the language. :)

Re: κατὰ κεφαλῆς ἔχων v. ἔχειν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς

I was googling the phrase and I get inside here and read your threat about this translation. I will make a try in new Greek with my perception and understanding without some evidence, just my language (I'm Greek). Hello, Iroza. I'm happy to have you joining us, and the perspective of someone who sp...

Re: In John 20:31 variants, is the difference between πιστεύσητε and πιστεύητε significant?

Huh. For some reason it won't let me upload my screen shots. Annoying. I'm sorry for this. The phpBB software is generally problematic with attachments. What I've done as a work around is upload images to an online server and then simply link them with the [​img] tag rather than attach them to the ...

Re: In John 20:31 variants, is the difference between πιστεύσητε and πιστεύητε significant?

Not really. It is only a difference of aspect. πιστεύητε is specifically "be believing" with a continuous aspect. πιστεύσητε is of aorist aspect, not carrying (but not negating) a continuous activity.

Re: Romans 1:3. Own translation. Grammar check

But might one not just say "... who descended from the line of David ..." and carry the intent perfectly well ? Spacing before punctuation...

Re: Romans 1:3. Own translation. Grammar check

Translation isn't a path to understanding. Right. It would be a better attack strategy to sit down with a teaching grammar and work through it. One can try to do inductive study on his own, simply comparing the Greek to the English and trying to understand what's going and draw conclusions from wha...
