Re: Understanding copyright of personal greek translation work?

LEB has basically the same quirky problematic license as the SBLGNT which is assessed earlier in this thread. Including the restriction that you have to report your sales data to Logos.

I wouldn't even take the accordance diagrammer's analysis as even technically possible.
Thanks, that is what I was trying to ascertain in the original post. It wasn't clear to me if there were two subjective options and the Accordance diagrammer saw it differently, or if one was incorrect.

Re: "Prepositional Phrases" and Syntax

Thats really helpful, thanks for your reply.

I take it from your response that technically both are possible—because you had to provide argumentation to demonstrate why your reading of the passage (and mine) was the correct option.

"Prepositional Phrases" and Syntax

Regarding John 3:1 Ἦν δὲ ἄνθρωπος ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων, Νικόδημος ὄνομα αὐτῷ, ἄρχων τῶν Ἰουδαίων· I read "ἐκ τῶν Φαρισαίων" as providing more information about the "ἄνθρωπος". However when I consult Accordance's "Diagram of the Greek New Testament", it is attached to "Ἦν" rather than "ἄνθρωπος". I don't...

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

My memory of first year Greek was a weekly list of words, and associated practice exercises that used words that I was not yet familiar with. So the practice sentences were not really “Greek reading” exercises, but more “dictionary lookup” exercises. Is there a textbook that provides example sentenc...

Revelation 21:5

Lately I am getting just a tiny bit more comfortable reading in Greek without reference to the English at all. Sometimes this leads to some odd misunderstandings of the Greek. :D Καὶ εἶπεν ὁ καθήμενος ἐπὶ τῷ θρόνῳ, Ἰδοὺ καινὰ ποιῶ πάντα καὶ λέγει, Γράψον, ὅτι οὗτοι οἱ λόγοι πιστοὶ καὶ ἀληθινοί εἰσιν...

Re: 5x1 definition challenge

I love the idea of this thread, however, ultimately I agree: It is all so much more complex than: ὄνος - ass Continuing with this theme, however, I wonder if it would not be much more beneficial for a project that produces beginner level example sentences to help solidify the understanding. i.e. {Gr...

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...
