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. I haven't been hearing heated and chaotic deba...

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. So, for instance, I am now able to query for lemma frequencies in both corpora. However, I don't yet have a very clear idea w...

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. Were speakers uniformly required, in speaking felicitous (generally acceptable) Ancient Greek, and more specifically Koine, to set out the pronoun ὃς in each cla...

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...

Yes, welcome!

When you say "related to Greek and AI", are you thinking in terms of Natural Language Processing (NLP) or something else?

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.

Re: Mark 2:3 - could missing antecedent be intentional?

The participial phrase doesn't need an antecedent, and besides it is introducing a new set of characters, namely, the four carrying the paralytic. Well, exactly. I'm looking at how new characters are introduced using verbs that have no explicit subject. And there are actually several instances of t...

Stephen Carlson wrote: July 1st, 2020, 12:52 am This is usually thought of as an impersonal use of the third-person plural. You're right that it is not anaphoric. It seems to be a feature of Mark's style.
Is there a good write-up somewhere?
