Re: προσκυνηςάτωσαν

Scott Lawson wrote:If προσκυνεὶτωσαν was available then the aorist form was not a default or unmarked usage and could therefore be an instance where aspect is an intended result
I apologize. I think I should have typed the accute accent rather than the grave on προσκυνείτωσαν.

προσκυνησάτωσαν

“To summarize this point then, the present tense forms of the imperativals were chosen when the author wished to communicate a general command or exhortation to direct his readers’ general behavior whenever appropriate. An aorist imperatival, in contrast, may call for the readers to perform more tha...

Re: Verbs of saying in the Imperative

Mike, It seems to me that your views are much along the lines expressed by Baugh or am I wrong? I'm beginning to think that when I feel I understand what a linguist is saying that I've probably misunderstood him. :D A linguist's clarification/analysis is presented cryptically just like the nature of...

Re: Verbs of saying in the Imperative

I would disagree with some examples of nuances that he "identified", and I would want to see how someone might explain Luke 10:5,10 because none of his five criteria apply as far as I can see. Baugh goes along fine with the infinitive and the subjunctive but then he comes to the imperative and ever...

Re: τίς εἴη 3 pers. pl pres. imper. τοῦ λόγου προσκυνέω;

The 3rd pers pl. pres imper of προσκυνεω evidently does not appear in the NT. Would that form be an available choice for NT writers? Would that be in their mental lexicon? Maybe that last question is a bit too subjective to answer.

Re: Verbs of saying in the Imperative

Well I am finding Mr. Kendall's link to Baugh's work on aspect in the oblique moods very helpful! He evidently draws heavily from Fanning's work. The work is designed for students and is bringing me up to speed on aspect and it's terminology. David have you gotten a chance to look at it? What do you...

What would the 3rd person plural present imperative be of the word PROSKYNEW?

Re: Verbs of saying in the Imperative

@Scott Lawson: I would be interested in what you think of what I've said. Boy! I'm not as able or as quick as David is in forming conclusions. My thoughts come in dribs and drabs unlike the torrents that David is able to produce. It does occur to me, however, that if one can distinguish the outstan...
