Greek Prepositions in the New Testament: A Cognitive-Functional Description

It looks like MAubrey and his wife have released a book on Greek Prepositions over at Logos that I wasn't aware of https://www.logos.com/product/197457/greek-prepositions-in-the-new-testament-a-cognitive-functional-description Frustratingly it appears to be only part of base packages, starting at Lo...

Re: Antiquities 1:50

If you look at LSJ for the middle of this verb, you get: "from Hom. downwds. more freq. than Act., take away for oneself." In its origin, then, it is clearly an indirect reflexive middle, and over time it seems to have expanded its range of usage at the expense of the active in more and more contex...

Re: Meta Language

What benefit does a student who wants to read Koine attain from becoming an expert in grammatical tagging? I would approach this question the same way I would the question of why I was taught maths and geography at school. I have never applied 99% of it, but if I wanted to study maths at university...

Re: Meta Language

I was asking this question long before you were on the forum. And yet you singled my post out in a dismissive manner as a prime example of the thing you were arguing isn’t worthwhile. Perhaps I have misunderstood what you were trying to do, but you successfully made me pretty angry with the way you...

Re: Meta Language

This is prime example of using meta language to mediate the cognitive distance between the reader and the text. Why do we need to know "What category of middle does the middle of αφαιρεω fall into here?" to read the text? I don't recall wondering about middle categories except when Carl Conrad addr...

Re: Antiquities 1:50

So, a follow up question. What category of middle does the middle of αφαιρεω fall into here? Indirect reflexive seems the best I can think of, in the sense of God did it in some way to benefit himself. This could be so that further instigation to sin would be prevented? Direct reflexive doesn't seem...

Re: Antiquities 1:50

P.S. I like how you are asking a question about Josephus in the beginners forum. I would be interested to see what sort of questions you would ask on an advanced forum! haha, I figured that it was a question about double accusatives so a beginner level topic at least. Thanks for the references to L...

Antiquities 1:50

§49 ὁ δὲ θεὸς ἥττονα γυναικείας συμβουλίας αὐτὸν γενόμενον ὑπετίθει τιμωρίᾳ, τὴν γῆν οὐκέτι μὲν οὐδὲν αὐτοῖς ἀναδώσειν αὐτομάτως εἰπών, πονοῦσι δὲ καὶ τοῖς ἔργοις τριβομένοις τὰ μὲν παρέξειν, τῶν δ ̓ οὐκ ἀξιώσειν. Εὔαν δὲ τοκετοῖς καὶ ταῖς ἐξ ὠδίνων ἀλγηδόσιν ἐκόλαζεν, ὅτι τὸν Ἄδαμον οἷς αὐτὴν ὁ ὄφ...

Re: Meta Language

Some of us removed the scaffolding some years back and now have become quite skeptical about the value of the scaffolding at any stage of learning. People who teach intro and intermediate often have a preoccupation with the scaffolding. Just curious, but wouldn't this depend on what your goal is. L...
