That looks like a lot of fun, thanks.

Re: lexicons and word meanings for a given period

The LSJ is normally ordered from earliest attestation to latest, but I'm not sure how consistent that is when a word is broken up in to various senses. As it is, you have to look at the author cited and determine when that author was writing.

Re: Good discussion of predicate nominals?

A quick search on JSTOR found nothing really relevant. I think the reason why little has been written about these is that they are somewhat intuitive, and take place only with intransitive verbs (including true passive constructions as in your example above). I'm not sure that your two examples are ...

Re: “Pleophorical” Hendiadys

Hey, knowing a bit of Greek and paying attention to the context helps with this one. πλείων and φέρω. But in my opinion writers who show off using extremely rare vocabulary should be shot, drawn and quartered and boiled in baby oil (not necessarily in that order), metaphorically speaking. Avoid verb...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

So the interesting question then to me is this: how is understanding of a TSKS construction taught in the classics ? I know that there is a section in Smyth relating to it, but I just searched The Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek (2019) and found NOTHING relating to it. That's fascinating! Smyt...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

It's the feminine part of your response that surprised me. I can't think of a reason why masculine abstracts would be exempt. Good observation. I've noticed it with feminine abstracts, never really paid attention to masculine. Even still, abstracts sometimes do have the article, so it's not really ...

Re: 2 Cor 1:3 articulation within a Granville-Sharp construction

In your first example, I think because it's not unusual for feminine abstract nouns to omit the article, and particularly in the oblique cases. Never heard of this rule. In the second, ἀδελφός is clearly appositional to the already articular ὁ υἱός, so no need to repeat the article. Talking about t...

Re: Meanings of the Word ἄφιξις

BDAG looks quite clear to me. Of course it can't mean "arrival" and "departure" at the same time -- you've answered your own question about that. Context determines which it means. ἄφιξις -εως, ἡ [ἀπό, ἵξις] ⓐ arrival HDT. 1.69.3, al. LYS. 2.26 etc.; ἡ οἴκαδε ἄ. return home DEMOSTH. epist. 1.2, al. ...
