Re: Seat of Moses (Singular and Plural in Koine Greek)

I would rather ask: is there any language which doesn't have such flexibility?

Notice the spam. It's not seen when I open the forum. But someone may have intruded into the system somehow, maybe there's some weakness is some forum software update?

Re: John 8:25 and the adverbial accusative την αρχην

Sterling did you notice that the Greek text is punctuated as a question? Your offered translation evidently doesn’t take into account this punctuation. If it was so straightforward a sentence then why is it viewed as a question? More to it than you seem to allow. http://www.codexsinaiticus.org/en/m...

Re: The imperfect of Romans 9:3

(1) We can attempt to treat it as a standard imperfect (2) We can treat it as an exception to the rule (3) Using Decker's approach Then there's (4) the modern view informed by linguistics where Koine has both tense (location in time) and aspect, but they can be used in many ways.

At least in Europe, there is protection for critical editions, but only for 30 years.
This is a EU directive, not a law. It doesn't hold up in any court.

ETC: Where Orthography Affects the New Testament Text

Evangelical Textual Criticism blog has interesting article about a subject every NT Greek student bumps into sooner or later: are our critical texts affected by (linguistic) interpretation when the "original" text didn't have spaces between words, punctuation and accents (and had different spelling)...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

But suppose we go the other route and create a text. What would it take to get street cred so that it can be used in academic publications and translations? We can re-interpret my question "why wouldn't that work today" to mean "if it produced a work with credibility then, why wouldn't it work in s...

Take NA27, SBLGNT and THGNT. Remove punctuation, paragraphs and capitalization. Somehow make them to use the same orthogr...
