Re: The negation of perfect verb forms

I have stumbled across Verbal Aspect Theory and the Prohibitions in the Greek New Testament today, I don't have time to read it, but skimming the Table of Contents suggests, unless I missed it, it has sections on all indicative verb forms except the perfect.

hmmmm....

The perfect refers simply to completed action, and the negated perfect to action not completed In English, If I say " The window is not broken " it is saying something about the present state at time of speaking. If I say, " The window was not broken ", then I am stating something about an event th...

Re: Please recommend a Reader's GNT

Thanks Stephen. I guess my point is that coming across variants from the more standard greek text's becomes a distraction from reading. Usually I begin thinking, "Wait, that doesn't sound right (in the greek), and then I discover its an NIV textual decision, and I am like, really? and I have to go a...

Re: The negation of perfect verb forms

This is a great question. I am doing a thesis on the perfect at the moment. I need to think about it a little.

Re: Please recommend a Reader's GNT

I started with the UBS reader, it was big, beautiful looking, and the entries at the bottom are aligned in columns so its super fast to find the word you are looking up. However it uses what some would say his "high quality" paper, which for me just means "extra thick", so although it is set out wel...

Re: In that Day

I wonder if usage of ‘In’ vs ‘on’ might hen an attempt to communicate a subtlety different meaning. I.e. on that day. Vs in those days. (Day referring to a specific day or a general era)

Database of Categorisation of verbs according to (for example) Wallace?

Is there such a thing as a database that catalogues verbs across the New Testament. So you can ask things like 'How many many Perfects are "Aoristic Perfects"'

I know various features of verbs are debatable, but some form of database/catalogue might just be more useful than none at all 😄

Re: Beginner grammar in Accordance vs. paper

Rodney Decker's Reading Koine Greek , as well as Mounce's works are available in Accordance. They cost quite a bit more there than in print, but I'm wondering if it is worth it. I prefer physical books, however for practical purposes, I almost always go digital, it means I always have the books wit...
