There is no evidence in ancient times for the 'palatalized' pronunciation of κ as [kʲ] before front vowels which is normal in modern Greek.

Thank you for posting that Perry. Should I understand from that that since the subject in the previous Claus is Satan, the subject and the claws under consideration now is non-optional and explains why it is explicit?

I think he meant Barry (dyslexia of the fingers ?)

Re: A Newbie Greek Learner

Hello! I just officially made my entrance into the world of Biblical Greek, so I likely won't be active for awhile. Even the beginner threads I saw were way over my head! I would enjoy getting to the point where I could read the Bible in Greek and experience it a little bit closer to the way those ...

Re: mere layman

I have an interest in Koine Greek, though only having the most rudimentary skills in dealing with its complexities. I am nearly entirely dependent upon resources and upon commentary by those skilled in it. Anyhow...thanks for the opportunity to benefit from your superior abilities! Daryl Welcome, D...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

What has just occurred to me is that, even today, different people-groups 'see' colors differently. Many years ago I taught a class composed entirely of Iraqi students - and they had great difficulty in distinguishing between 'blue' and 'green' (It was a Chemistry class; one of the tests for an alka...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

- - - snip snip - - - I would love to have the opportunity to teach Greek directly, in a classroom or to individuals. Living in a small rural community as I do, though, the interest isn't there. So I hope to provide some materials like this to help teach indirectly. That, and articles I write for m...

Re: prep phrase position

Hello, I am brand new here and I have what is probably a very basic question but it's finals time and my brain isn't functioning. :D When using a prepositional phrase to modify a noun, does the placement before or after the noun matter to the meaning? for example: ηλθον προ εμοῦ or προ εμοῦ ηλθον T...

Re: New Greek Teacher

how much value is added to New Testament interpretation by reviving Koine and turning it into an anachronistic living language usable only by the rare folk who care to learn it? I don't think my students would be interested in using Koine as a spoken language. Their motivation for taking my class h...
