Re: pronunciation difference between η and ει

Well, that's all good information. Seem bad for communication, though. Can you imagine speaking a language in which you cannot distinguish orally/aurally between "you" and "we"? "I pray that God gives us [ἡμῖν] reprieve from our [ἡμῶν] troubles." > Which someone takes a nice blessing from you, as he...

Confusion between ἠμεῖς and ὐμεῖς is pretty common in the manuscripts.
Because the manuscripts were from a different period, no? Do we see such confusion in the earlier manuscripts?

Re: pronunciation difference between η and ει

The modern Greek,pronunciation is called iotacism. Ai, Ei, oi, I, ETA, are all pronounced the same. It makes learning correct spelling difficult for beginners in the Greek language. That is why in teaching beginning Greek I did not use this modern Greek pronunciation, though I taught students about...

Re: Coining a phrase

I had wondered if what I said might be interpreted as something like 'scholastic questions'. So I can imagine things like ἐρωτήματα διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτηματα ἐν [τῷ] διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτἠματα σχολῇ ἐρωτήματα ἐν [τῇ] σχολῇ or the verbal forms as Jason proposed τὰ ἐν τῷ διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτώμενα would all be int...

Re: Coining a phrase

Δανιήλ, χαῖρε. 1. Is the verbal phrasing to be preferred ? Is it more Greek ? might well be and I had considered doing something similar It's not really verbal. It's a participle, which is certainly very common. I would think that this would be a better expression. Maybe others should chime in on t...

Re: Coining a phrase

Woodhouse gives τὸ διδασκαλεῖον for "school."

τὰ ἐν τῷ διδασκαλείῳ ἐρωτώμενα - "things asked in the school"

What do you think?

I'm not a philologist, neither a scholar, just a reader.
I'm in the same position. Not a scholar, but I enjoy the language. :)

Re: κατὰ κεφαλῆς ἔχων v. ἔχειν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς

I was googling the phrase and I get inside here and read your threat about this translation. I will make a try in new Greek with my perception and understanding without some evidence, just my language (I'm Greek). Hello, Iroza. I'm happy to have you joining us, and the perspective of someone who sp...

Re: In John 20:31 variants, is the difference between πιστεύσητε and πιστεύητε significant?

Huh. For some reason it won't let me upload my screen shots. Annoying. I'm sorry for this. The phpBB software is generally problematic with attachments. What I've done as a work around is upload images to an online server and then simply link them with the [​img] tag rather than attach them to the ...

Re: In John 20:31 variants, is the difference between πιστεύσητε and πιστεύητε significant?

Not really. It is only a difference of aspect. πιστεύητε is specifically "be believing" with a continuous aspect. πιστεύσητε is of aorist aspect, not carrying (but not negating) a continuous activity.
