For all the world, this reminds me of:

Overly verbose?
No, if you read his description of how to read Latin, it sounds like he is assuming the same kind of things as you are talking about with "dynamic syntax."

Re: Dynamic Syntax

I recently came across Dynamic Syntax in one of my books and have started to read on this / download journal articles and buy books. Does anyone know of any work applying this to Koine/classical Greek? It looks interesting as a cross-over with my relevance theory interests. The basic principle as f...

[Rev 20:2-7 MGNT] (2) καὶ ἐκράτησεν τὸν δράκοντα ὁ ὄφις ὁ ἀρχαῖος ὅς ἐστιν Διάβολος καὶ ὁ Σατανᾶς καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν χίλια ἔτη (3) καὶ ἔβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν ἄβυσσον καὶ ἔκλεισεν καὶ ἐσφράγισεν ἐπάνω αὐτοῦ ἵνα μὴ πλανήσῃ ἔτι τὰ ἔθνη ἄχρι τελεσθῇ τὰ χίλια ἔτη μετὰ ταῦτα δεῖ λυθῆναι αὐτὸν μικρὸν χρόνον (...

Re: How to translate ἐρχόμενος?

Can you recommend some that I can access for free online? I don't read paper books any more. Look at the Greek grammars here on Textkit . They aren't for the New Testament specifically, except for the short treatment from James Strong (which isn't a full course). I recommend that you start with Fir...

Re: Please help me to identify the letters in greek

Hello again, I have the nerve to write here again and I will say this with a feeling of inadequacy, because now I realize that many in the forum (perhaps all of you), are PhDs and scholars and I'm literally a simpleton, a nobody. Thing is that I had this idea to embark in the endeavor to translate ...

Re: ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι Agent, Instrument, Sphere? I Corinthians 12:13

1Cor. 12:13 καὶ γὰρ ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι ἡμεῖς πάντες εἰς ἓν σῶμα ἐβαπτίσθημεν Sure looks like Parallelism . Replacing ἐν ἑνὶ with εἰς ἓν is really clever. Cooper[1] says when ἐν is used with a personal dative the referent of the dative is being considered as an insturment . [1] Attic Greek Prose Syntax...

Re: Eph 2:8 τοῦτο ... τὸ δῶρον

But you could also be right, or it could be that it's both and a first speaker of the language wouldn't even notice the difference. From what I can tell of ancient native speakers who interpreted the passage, they placed much less (indeed virtually no) weight on the gender of τοῦτο in their interpr...

Re: ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι Agent, Instrument, Sphere? I Corinthians 12:13

According to our definition, if ἐν + dative is used to express agency, the noun in the dative must not only be personal, but must also be the agent who performs the action.48 BDF accurately assess the NT situation of the naked dative used for personal agency: “Dative of agency is perhaps represente...

Re: ἐν ἑνὶ πνεύματι Agent, Instrument, Sphere? I Corinthians 12:13

Thank you. I recognise the language of going down into the water and coming up from the water. However, my question regards 1 Corinthians 12:13 and the preposition ἐν. Does the collocation of ἐν with βαπτίζω in the Gospels (Matthew 3:11 Ἐγὼ μὲν ὑμᾶς βαπτίζω ἐν ὕδατι εἰς μετάνοιαν, compare Mark 1:8;...
