Actually, now that I have looked at the glossary in my Nestle-Aland again, it gives Acts 21.27 as an instance of meaning "stirred up" which sounds like another extension of mixing.
Fascinating how many of these conceptual metaphors work across languages.

Of course, many don't.

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

But this usage shows that the lexicon doesn't capture all the usages of the word that were in use at any given time. Of course not. How could it? People use language creatively to say new things all the time, or they use it playfully, or they use it to describe things that did not previously exist....

Re: Translation of non-genitive / genitive Proper names

We do this in colloquial English sometimes. sp1: Kathy came by. sp2: Which Kathy? sp1: Jonathan's Kathy. She might be Jonathan's mother or his wife or his sister or his friend. This only works for people who know both Jonathan and Kathy and know their relationship. In a translation for an audience 2...

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

How about this? Josephus Against Apion Book 1 section 236: εἶναι δέ τινας ἐν αὐτοῖς 1.236 καὶ τῶν λογίων ἱερέων φησὶ λέπρᾳ συγκεχυμένους How do you interpret that word in this context, particularly together with λέπρᾳ? Do you know where to find standard English translations of that section? Do you ...

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

I haven't looked at the contexts in which each of these phrases occur yet, but it seems obvious that the Johannine uses in this list all contain the article. Outside of the Johannine writings, we're left with this: Phil 2:15 φαίνεσθε ὡς φωστῆρες ἐν κόσμῳ Col 2:20b τί ὡς ζῶντες ἐν κόσμῳ δογματίζεσθε...

Yes there are some Greek Mss. that have Ισακ: Cod. Sinaiticus, Cod. Bezae, (Papyri:) P13, P46.
Sure, but that doesn't involve the problematic χ. It's not what I meant by "close".

And how is κόσμῳ in John 1:10 ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἦν not salient?
If John always uses the article in this phrase, the question may not be relevant here.

Any suggestions why ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ sometimes lacks the article?
