Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

Can anyone tell me what "the spatial value of heightened proximity " is supposed to mean? I think it just means "more prominent" or emphatic, yet not really spatial in the physically spatial sense. I think his Basics (2008) book clarifies this. I only have the kindle version (i.e. locations rather ...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

I am becoming inclined to believe that Randal's example "Πᾶν ὁ μεγας τεθνηκεν" would not be considered by Campbell to suggest process (dying). (Although I am not inclined just yet to disagree with Randall, he seems smarter and more experienced than me :D ) Reading his 2007 (Verbal Aspect...) publica...

Re: Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

Hi Randall, Thanks for your reply and your correction, it is much appreciated. Looking back at that sentence I can see where I have messed it up. I would attempt to re-write it, but I am not sure there is any point attempting to summarise what Randall Buth says to Randall Buth 😄 Your chapter in this...

Re: Analysis of all the relative clauses in Revelation

Intriguing, I've never seen someone do this before. I wonder what inspired it? What is the purpose of such research?

Understanding Randal Buth's example of the Perfect tense he presents to critique Campell

I am working my way through "The Greek Verb Revisited"[1] and I am trying to work out if I misunderstand Randall, or Con, or both. 😄 In Randall's chapter "Perfect Greek Morphology and Pedagogy" he writes: Plutarch’s account of the report of Pan’s death used the perfect because Pan had already died— ...

Re: Biblical Greek, modern pronounication

Yes, the textbooks really don't say much about pronunciation except for an initial short section about how to pronounce greek. One exception to this I know of is Decker's textbook. It has a slightly more detailed introduction to pronunciation and caters for "reconstructed" which is much closer to mo...

Re: Randall Buth's "Mark's Use of the Historical Present"

Perhaps. Publishing date, 1977. I did notice that, but has it been superseded? I respect Dr Randall and would love to hear what he has to say on the matter. (that, and it still gets cited, i.e. It's cited by Campbell's monograph on verbal aspect, and Runge's reasonably recent book on Discourse Anal...

Randall Buth's "Mark's Use of the Historical Present"

I've stumbled across this particular article in a number of articles and books now, so I am trying to find a way to access it. It is not available in the journal database of the several institutions I have access to, and most google searches seem to point to here: https://www.sil.org/resources/archi...

Re: ἡγιασμένος (Perfect participle of holy/sanctified/ἁγιάζω)

Thanks for your helpful replies.

It would seem I need to pursue the work on participles in a more advanced grammar. Thanks!

Re: ἡγιασμένος (Perfect participle of holy/sanctified/ἁγιάζω)

Thanks, that articulates what I was suspecting the answer was going to be. Although it feels a little more clunky to say "This participle speaks of a past action with ongoing effect from the perspective of a future point in time" than what I assume Porter or Campbell (If I understand then correctly,...
