Yes, I have seen that analysis done in a couple of different ways, but I do not have any reference handy. The last one I remember seeing at SBL a few years ago was done based on syntax patterns.

This is a really great thread ...
I have been following it too. I am hoping that at the end Stephen will explain his conclusions on the matter. Or perhaps he is going to write a paper on it?

Re: πολιτεύεσθε and πολιτεύεσθαι

Btw Alan, ε ~ αι is the second most common interchange of vowels in the papyri do you have a tool to list all occurrences of say ε ⟷ αι in one/two/.../all manuscripts? This could allow tracing of manuscript lineage, and may help in this particular problem. One more reason not to smooth away that in...

Re: πολιτεύεσθε and πολιτεύεσθαι

Doesn't this seem like a chiasm? ἐμοὶ γὰρ τὸ ζῆν Χριστὸς καὶ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν κέρδος ... ἵνα τὸ καύχημα ὑμῶν περισσεύῃ ἐν χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ ἐν ἐμοὶ διὰ τῆς ἐμῆς παρουσίας πάλιν πρὸς ὑμᾶς μόνον ἀξίως τοῦ εὐαγγελίου πολιτεύεσθαι (א) ἵνα εἴτε ἐλθὼν καὶ ἰδὼν ὑμᾶς εἴτε ἀπὼν ἀκούσω τὰ περὶ ὑμῶν ὅτι στήκετε ἐν ἑνὶ...

Re: πολιτεύεσθε and πολιτεύεσθαι

In my dissertation, I went with this rule ("as long as they can make sense") but I now think it is too strict and not necessarily reflective what the scribe is trying to convey. I now prefer a standard of "more probable than not", rather than "not strictly impossible". In other words, we would have...

Re: πολιτεύεσθε and πολιτεύεσθαι

But I would probably still parse it as an imperative. Gignac says ε ~ αι is the second most common interchange of vowels in the papyri. Well, that is my dilemma. Did 3 different scribes all use what looks like the infinitive ending which would then cause a more awkward grammar, or were they simply ...

πολιτεύεσθε and πολιτεύεσθαι

I am finishing up parsing all variants in the CNTR collation (https://greekcntr.org) and am now left with a number of situations involving verbs with sound-a-like endings. For example, most critical texts in Phil. 1:27 have: Μόνον ἀξίως τοῦ εὐαγγελίου τοῦ Χριστοῦ πολιτεύεσθε (imperative present m/p ...

Re: Center for New Testament Restoration

As a newcomer to B-Greek, and also to the study of Biblical Greek, I apologize if I have misunderstood anything in your earlier posts on this thread, but I would like to ask you this: Will the CNTR project make it possible to click on any verse in the NT and see at a glance all the different manusc...

Re: Mike Aubrey on the Greek Perfect

This is one of the most convincing talks I have heard on the Greek perfect. Mike presented this at the SEBTS conference about a month ago. Lots of data, carefully arranged to make a compelling case. The Greek perfect: An overview, lots of data, and a few observations Thanks for this. I tried to tak...

Just wanted to acknowledge this. Sounds like a lot of hard work, but of great use when perfected.
Thanks. As you know, the folks at B-Greek have been very helpful to me in getting the data to this point.
