Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

Barry, I also am one of those old dogs, but am trying to learn some new tricks, so I don't actively use the "D" word. The report by my student on Rachel Aubrey's article was very well done, deserving of an A, I believe. These are undergraduates, but destined for further study, so I am ple...

Absolutely, at times a bit like using a camel... :) But well worth the effort nonetheless.

Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

Some really good responses above regarding the actual linguistic reality behind what we old dogs still call deponents. To explain the traditional terminology a bit better, a "middle deponent" is one which uses only middle forms throughout, even when as for the future and aorist there is a ...

Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

It is what the traditional grammars call a passive deponent. There is no idea of "forced" and it is used consistently of "spend the night" throughout Greek literature. αὐλίζομαι impf. ηὐλιζόμην. Pass.: fut. αὐλισθήσομαι LXX; JosAs 9:5; 1 aor. ηὐλίσθην (s. αὐλή; Hom.+; OGI 730, 7 ...

Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

The voyage by Antaeopolite is very vexing, and each day I am depressed because of it, and am very worried by the matter. If it is necessary to give a fee to the brother of the mother of the son* of Axilla, you do well by giving it after you have received* it from Sarapion out of my own expense. Rem...

Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

Another one for this weekend. This one's a bit different, but suprisingly understandable. 1 Ὁ παράπλους τοῦ Ἀνταιοπολίτου 2 ὀχληρότατός ἐστιν καὶ καθʼ ἑκάσ- 3 την ἡμέραν βαροῦμαι διʼ αὐτὸν 4 καὶ λείαν τῷ πράγματι καταξύο- 5 μαι. ἐὰν δέῃ τῷ ἀδελφῶι τῆς μη- 6 τρὸς τῶν υἱῶν Ἀχιλλᾶ δοθῆναι 7 σπονδάριον ...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

Sorry on the metalanguage puke. Perhaps the occupational hazard of writing a dissertation which touches in many ways on passages like this. Should have cleaned it up after I wrote it. I'm currently swimming in 4 or 5 other peoples' metalanguage and trying to carve out my own in the process. On top ...

Re: What B-Greek does best

When B-Greek began back in 1992 (see the archives ), it was a mailing list with little competition. In 2011, we moved it to a phpBB forum, and still had little competition. These days, there are plenty of Facebook groups and other groups to discuss biblical Greek. What does B-Greek do best, compare...

Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

Dionysius invites you to dine at his children's wedding* tomorrow at the (house?) of Ischyrion, that being the 30th, from the 9th hour. * It is plural, but not quite sure that works here in English translation. Interesting that both this and the previous one just use dative article + genitive of pe...

Re: A papyrus for linguistic fun and profit...

Another short and sweet along the lines of the previous one.

Ἐρωτᾷ σε Διονύσιος δειπνῆ-
σαι εἰς τοὺς γάμους τῶν τέκνων
ἑαυτοῦ ἐν τῇ Ἰσχυρίωνος αὔριον,
ἥτις ἐστὶν λ, ἀπὸ ὥρας θ

Enjoy!
