Re: 1 Clement 20:5 - ἀβύσσων τε ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ νερτέρων ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα

Good advice. I might get worried that if I just gloss over things that I will not be learning. As you say though, just continuing to expose myself to the Greek is probably for the best. I am not an academic so it isn't like I need to write papers on it or defend a position in public I must admit, I...

Re: 1 Clement 20:5 - ἀβύσσων τε ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ νερτέρων ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα

Before I read the rest of your post I read the sentence in the same way as Holmes and Lightfoot. It just seemed natural to take the first neuter plural as a substantive with ἀβύσσων. Then I had to ask myself "why?" My answer was because of τε...καί, both...and. The arrangement forces ἀβύσσων ἀνεξικν...

Re: The term "grammar-translation method"

I've seen the term used quite often in discussions of Latin teaching methodology, especially in contrast with TPRS and CI.

Re: φανεροω in Eph 5:13

Hello everyone! First, I copied this text of Eph. 5:13 from a web page: τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται, πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν. Then I used a Greek font on my phone to do this: τὰ δὲ πάντα ἐλεγχόμενα ὑπὸ τοῦ φωτὸς φανεροῦται, πᾶν γὰρ τὸ φανερούμενον φῶς ἐστιν. Would some...

Re: τὰ χείλη ἡμῶν παρ᾿ ἡμῖν ἐστίν

παρά can take all three cases. A. W. gen., which nearly always as in Hom., Hdt., Pla., X. et al. denotes a pers., and indicates that someth. proceeds fr. this pers. (Hs 2:3 is an exception): B. w. dat., the case that exhibits close association C. w. acc. of pers. or thing Arndt, W., Danker, F. W., &...

Re: Rough or smooth breathing on hebrew names?

"Rough and smooth breathings of Hebrew names" is probably above the pay-grade of Greek Professors. So, what do I mean? I literally laughed out loud when I saw this. Why? Because I said to myself, "Self, this is above your pay grade. Randall or somebody else needs to get this one." And I'm glad you ...
