Re: New Resource for Greek Students (Max and Moritz)

My mother had the German edition of this book. It was hardcover, with dust jacket, and in color. The drawings were superb. I would try to find that edition to use for illustrations. I may still have a copy. The story is about two boys who get kicks out of hurting people's animals or just people. The...

Re: Convert from Erasmian

I tell students, you speak like someone from Pergamos, I like Alexandrians. We talk differently, what matters is that we understand each other. When you read a text, you 'hear' sounds (in your mind) whether you speak them or not. What is important is 2 things: (1) Be consistent in how you pronounce ...

Re: Summer Biblical Language Intensive Courses

Language intensive courses are courses which (imop) have a 2-6 week duration per 1 year course.

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I received Dickey's book yesterday. I'll try to participate, though some weeks may be hard. The GreekStudy group had an email collation software for this type of class participation. I ran a couple of groups there. I also ran a group on Greek composition, using Moodle, where we used assignment submi...

Re: Adding accents

I was wondering if anyone is actually teaching the rising and falling of the polytonic accents, or does everyone simply teach them as stress accents? Steven Daitz teaches rising and falling tones for Restored Attic Greek. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxc03F-vhw8 (starting about 34:20 in the ...

Re: R. W. Funk and the two different structuralisms

So how did Funk's theory of language make Funk's BIGHG different from Smyth, BDF, Robertson and more modern authors such as Porter, Rijksbaron, Runge, etc. Did Funk's theory and influence continue? (I think Funk is close to Goetchius at least in his approach to presentation). Can we see some solid e...

Re: Are there grounds for taking εἶδον as imperative in Rev.

Probably not. You are suggesting the 2nd aorist is taking a first aorist ending. The pattern is Καὶ εἶδον... 6.1 Καὶ εἶδον ...6.2 Καὶ εἶδον ... 6.5 ...καὶ εἶδον 6.8 καὶ εἶδον 6.9 εἶδον 6.12 καὶ εἶδον
