Re: How to search forums for an exact string of words ?

From a 2012 post by Jonathan Robie, it looks like I'm right. Use Google's site search site:ibiblio.org ["search string"] Here are some tricks with Google's site search. OR operator. Google accepts the OR search operator. This can be useful. E.g. site:ibiblio.org "Rom. 5:20" OR "Romans 5:20" OR "Rom ...

Re: How to search forums for an exact string of words ?

Maybe there's a better way, but I use Google. In the search box, type... site:ibiblio.org ...followed by a string in quotes. E.g. site:ibiblio.org "Corpus Linguistics and the Greek of the New Testament" Here's the result: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aibiblio.org+%22Corpus+Linguistics+and+t...

Re: Meaning of ἀπέθανον ([all] died) in 2 Cor. 5:14

Re: Hi, I'm Friedrich de Wet

Friedrich, Good to hear from down South. The Grammar-Translation method does work for a very small percentage of learners. The rest end up with the same sort of facility with the language as you describe. Communicative methods work for a large percentage of learners. In order to reach reading fluenc...

Wonderful tool!
Anyone who learns or teaches Koine via communicative methods take notice, create a bookmark, and say a little prayer of thanks for Ben Kantor.

Bringing the thread back on track... develop a pronunciation scheme that consistently pronounces accents on the syllables the accent occurs. Correct accent is more important than people realize, I think. To illustrate it, take an English word and mispronounce the accent. Take the same word and mispr...
