Perfect participles are practically adjectival, here describing the state that they are currently in, rooted and grounded (and proof that mixed metaphors are biblical).
Well said. Especially since they're middle!

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

For example, were there any verses in the bible that prior to 1990 had always been translated in the past tense, but then, thanks to the new understanding, the translation was updated to a proleptic future aorist? That should be a simple "yes or no" answer, with demonstrable examples if the answer ...

After the Porter vs Fanning debate revolutionized Greek scholarship
Also, it didn't revolutionize Greek scholarship. They're touch points on a long standing trend.

Re: Introduction The Contribution of the Cordoba-School to the Lexicography of New Testament Greek

The original work was in Spanish and has been available for some time, though there's some new things here, too. It's a solid representation of structural semantics popular in the 1970's and 80's.

Re: Does κατάλαλος have forensic associations?

I wouldn't feel comfortable attributing forensic associations given the data available. BDAG appears to give most all the lexical data available--I don't see much more in LSJ beyond a handful of references in Polybius and nothing that looks forensic.

A Indo-European linguist, Matthew Scarborough, has an excellent site surveying them and their usefulness/accuracy. https://consultingphilologist.wordpress.com/indo-european-etymological-dictionaries/ Also: it looks like you n...

Re: Romans 10:10 and impersonal "passives"

The glosses "is believed" and "is professed" would be fine renderings of a perfect medio-passive, but it isn't a very good translation of a present.

Re: PhD thesis - Rudolph - Reclaiming γαρ

The best place to check if an academic work is cited is https://scholar.google.com If you search for "Reclaiming Γάρ" there, you'll get two hits, the thesis from 2014 and a book chapter by the same author from 2017. None of them have any citations (although the book chapter should have cited the th...
