Re: Evangelist and Bible translator

Hi Jonathan Robie, that is a lot of strawmen you erect. I didn't say SIL and Biblica are the same organization, or that SIL is responsible for the NIV, or that B-Greek is a forum for discussions of "best translation", "best critical text", etc. I mentioned my concern about SIL because you spoke of ...

Re: The Perfect Storm - October release?

From the Amazon blurb: Nowhere are the chaotic debates surrounding contemporary aspect theory more heated than in discussions of the theory's application to Hellenistic Greek, and especially its understanding of the semantics of the Greek perfect tense.

Re: Hello!

Yes, I've already done some utilities that resemble your Jupyter notebooks using XQuery. Basically, I've merged Nestle NT & LXX morphology into a unified data structure.

Re: Syntax of Matthew 19:9

I would like to try to clarify what (at least for me) rather uncertain matter of syntax the hypothesised translation of Matt 19:9 raises.

Re: Evangelist and Bible translator

Yes, welcome! FWIW, I work for SIL International, doing software for Bible translation. So I work with a lot of Bible translators. Thank you for the welcome! I must note out of Christian duty (Jude 3-4) that I am very concerned about SIL, especially its relationship to the NIV and Biblica, because ...

Re: Material on NT & LXX text processing analysis?

Hello everybody, I am looking for some material about NT & LXX text processing analysis. Basically, I would like know if there is any analysis including for instance: Quantity of words by type (noun, adjetive, verb, etc) - per book/chapter Word frequency - per book/chapter Verb tenses frequency - p...

Yes, welcome!

Which word is missing an antecedent? Isn't it usually pronouns that take antecedents?
I probably used the wrong word here. I tend to use the word 'antecedent' to mean 'something introduced earlier that is referred to here', which is a little sloppy. Sorry to be confusing.
