Re: Errors In Revelation?

We should agree that we disagree, at least I disagree with your last statement. These examples are clear and parallels to Rev. - so the claim of solecim is false, as there are no examples of this kind of nouns being modified by feminine adjectives (only as in Rev, masculine) and you could not falsif...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

Shaking head: Exactly that is addressed in my statement, exactly that and nothing else (check the examples above and you will see only maskuline adjectives modifying these kind of nouns and no feminines, exactly as John did in Rev.), end of debate on my side. I think a waste of time - and so we coul...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

Ok, then it takes a bit longer for me (I could have copied my German Original at once), but ok: Seeing in Rev. 14,19 an ungrammatical blunder by John can be traced back to simple copy and past false claims of folks with a lack of understanding of Greek Grammar of these kind of Nouns (a combination o...

Re: Errors In Revelation?

Ok, first a short apology, I was a bit too hard in my formulation on Mike, I feel sorry. Of course his statement on the grammar of Rev. is false, but nothing is said about the rest or the other content. Ok, Mike? If I get a list of "solecisms" - am I free to copy German as answers ? If not, then it ...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Dear Mike, reading thru your thesis I stumbled on that claim: "The Apocalypse of John, written by a non-native speaker provides more opportunity for finding ungrammatical clauses than most texts". Having studied the Greek text of Revelation for some years I have to say, that your sentence is more th...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

To give a recommendation: Crellin, R. 2016. The Syntax and Semantics of the Perfect Active in  Literary Koine Greek. Publications of the Philological Society 47. Wiley-Blackwell I read that when it appeared in the academia.edu-edition, the print book I have not obtained, but should be the same conte...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

I consider the last statement of Randall to be a good and compact kind of definition of the force of the perfect: "So the perfect includes a 'perfective' component, as a minimum, and it also includes some kind of continuation of that 'perfective' component, whether as 'stative' or 'resultative'. I a...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Dear friends, Mike said: "Peter, maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying, but the ancient grammarians knew about aspect and knew that it is encoded on the verb". I was, context should have made it clear, esp. referring to the perfect-imperfect distinction of Con Camp. as main theory of explain...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

As I see I have to underline what Mike wrote and being a linguist myself I just can shake head what damage Porter and Campbell brought in the debate on Greek. The distinction between perfective and imperfective Verbal aspect is nothing the Greek language is all about, and of course never encoded in ...

Re: Help needed in Rev

Thank you! Euclid is available online (in German, I think probably in English as well) - the Greek might be a bit confusing at the first glance. But I understand the sentence as a mathematical sign of equation (as a "="). So transferred to Rev (and Joh often places numbers on the left, to stress it)...
