In your subject-affectedness model of the verb, is there is there an implication that the one issuing the command will be involved in the carrying out of the subject-affected model. I have (...

Re: Policy: B-Greek does require Greek

People who use interlinears tend to believe they are interacting with the Greek. I think that is a good starting point for moving forward. I would agree with you that "People who use interlinears tend to BELIEVE they are interacting with the Greek." The problem is that I don't agree that they ARE i...

Re: Time: aorist participle, aorist main verb

Καὶ ὑποστρέψαντες οἱ ἀπόστολοι διηγήσαντο αὐτῷ I would understand this as "When they had returned , the apostles told him …" Καὶ παραλαβὼν αὐτοὺς ὑπεχώρησεν This I would understand as "When he had corralled them [gathered them together] he withdrew" In both cases the action of the aorist participle...

Like Gen 15:17 וַיְהִ֤י הַשֶּׁ֙מֶשׁ֙ בָּ֔אָה
שֶׁמֶשׁ can be either masculine or feminine which is not true for חִתָהּ which is feminine (sorry about the mappiq in the final he).

Re: ηνοιγη in passive (Acts 12:10, Revelation 15:5)

While there are quite a number of irregular verbs, there is also a pattern according to which the principal parts are developed. It is important to learn this pattern. For the irregulars, you are largely correct that you simply need to learn them [Latin example so I don't need to change fonts: fero,...

Yes. I see the context now. Sorry Eeli. Whew! The stars are still in their orbit! The universe is still "unfolding as it should"!

Re: How can I save Unicode characters in a .txt file?

If you really do mean a text file, it is not possible to save Unicode in a text file since it allows only 128 differing characters (ASCII). You will need to choose some other format than a text file.
