Re: Use of the article with abstract nouns

Is it possible that it could be understood something like "that love which is.." (ὅ ἐστιν)?

Re: Relevance Theory in Action

For example, I'm not aware of any way to measure these cognitive effects and processing effort. I don't know about this situation, but in general cognitive linguistics is one of the few - or even the only? - frameworks where things can be measured objectively. For example reaction time or brain act...

1. I live in a house.
2. I live in hope.
So this is the same what MAubrey said earlier, "metaphorical container".

Re: What is the function of ἐν in Galatians 3:12?

For ζάω not so much conduct one's life or retain one's live, as simply to live = be alive = have life. Could we say "stays alive"? I.e. as long as one is "in" the law. That the things a person are the domain metaphorical container *in which* they live. I don't understand MAubrey's syntax, but proba...

Re: Koine majuscule letter stroke order, advice requested

Very interesting thread, but I disagree with this: as important and meaningful as the proper Koine pronunciation, etc. * Speaking and hearing are the basics in human communication and language. Writing isn't. * Majority (or at least large part) of the people back then couldn't read, let alone write....

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

Here's some clarification for my earlier thought: The referent is certainly the same -- all the dead people. But think about it this way: we have verbs and they have aspect. We can refer to same events using different aspects. One has all the event in the view. The other views it without referring t...

Well, I guess I should say then, I personally don't know what I would have done with a more descriptive title!
You could have added it to the article?

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

I have to strongly disagree with Eakin in one detail: In Luke 8: 27 we are told of the Gerasene demoniac that " for a long time he had worn clothes, and abode not ἐν οἰκίᾳ, but in the tombs ". The meaning is certainly " in the house ", i. e. "at home ", rather "in any house", as R. V. has it. Why "c...

Re: Greek Grammars on the Articulation of Prepositional Objects

Turner has lengthy discussions about different kinds of proper names and the article, and there's something intertwined about the lack of the article and prepositions. There's nothing specifically dedicated to the article ...
