Basic Glosses Only?

The way that some vocabulary words are given, they are given with not only the basic gloss but additional usage of it as it might also be frequently used in a given context. For example, in Mounce's textbook (who gets his vocabulary from Klein and a bit from Metzger lists the meaning for καρδία as b...

Re: Learning Ancient Greek vs Other Languages

I should also add that in French class, the lexical form for verbs is the present infinitive form. I'm not actually sure why Ancient Greek uses the the present/active/indicative/1st/singular form instead of their present/active/infinitive forms.

Re: Learning Ancient Greek vs Other Languages

Another example: *In Ancient Greek courses, at the end of a textbook chapter or class unit you would be given some Greek sentences to translate into English (I've seen some that also has you translate from English to Greek). *In my French classes we have these instructions on our homework: "Rempliss...

Learning Ancient Greek vs Other Languages

I began taking French classes a couple weeks ago and I couldn't help but compare how ancient Greek is taught versus how my classes and other second languages are taught. Ancient Greek is taught basically with a bunch of charts and all kinds of technicalities for how words are formed and all kinds of...

Re: Sumners: Essentials of New Testament Greek

Welcome. I had to use the "revised" edition of Summer's book, and needless to say, it was terrible. It's actually more of an abridged version of the first edition, and my class found it too vague and confusing, with too many errors in it that made frustrating to use. Why they made a shorter version ...

Re: perfect participles

No example in particular. I'm just trying to get the generic jist of how its relative time works when it's being used adverbially. It's relative time would be previous to the main verb, of course. What other time do you think it could take on? I meant the element about the continuing effect of the ...

Re: Brian Renshaw

Welcome. I'm surprised you went through Mounce in just one semester. I've been using Mounce for review and it's taken me two whole semesters worth of time just to review the stuff I already partially know. It took us two semesters in Bible College to go through an abridged version of a Ray Summers t...

Kill has a κ in it...αποκτείνω. ἀπέκτεινε Καϊάφας τὸν Ἰησοῦν.
I forgot about θάνατος, which is a part of ἀποθνῄσκω's root. The κ helps too. Thanks.

perfect participles

I'm a bit confused, I think, about the relative time of the perfect participle. Mounce only says its time is the same as its indicative use (completed action with effects still ongoing), but this says nothing about its relative time. Dana-Mantey and Wallace say it denotes action prior to the time of...
