Re: Jerusalem: Singular or Plural:

Thanks, that clears things up pretty well. Plurals can be weird, even here on the internets.

Jerusalem: Singular or Plural:

I'm running across parsing of seemingly random singular and plural declensions of the GNT word for Jerusalem: πᾶσα Ἱεροσόλυμα is nominative singular feminine in Matt 2:3 Ἱεροσόλυμα could be nominative singular feminine in Matt 3:5--or nominative plural neuter? εν ιεροσολυμοις must be dative plural n...

Re: NS of ANDROS vs ANQRWPOS

Eeli: No, I was looking at http://www.iohannes.com/XML/transcriptions/greek/04_032S.xml#K-B04K5 Ken: Thanks. Someone should add the other cases to make the table even more useful. Wikipedia is not usually a recommended source for such research, as those in the know often disdain to correct it. See h...

NS of ANDROS vs ANQRWPOS

Another newbie question. I'm reading a transcription of John 5:5 in 037 and I noticed the NS ANOS. I knew that this can be an abbreviation for ANQRWPOS, but then wondered, how do I know that it couldn't just as well stand for ANDROS? I see two possibilities: 1. ANQRWPOS and ANDROS are in different c...

Re: ὄρνις vs ὄρνις

Probably making a pair of ὁ ἀλέκτωρ (-ορος) and ἡ ὄρνις (-ιθος) along with 2.4 τὰ νοσσία buckled into the back seat would make a better basis for the coddling of beginners than declensional similarities do. I'll say. I've learned Spanish and Arabic in the classroom, and tackled Hebrew, Greek, and F...

Re: ὄρνις vs ὄρνις

Thanks for the input. I'm coming to the conclusion that my source erred, for whatever reason, in assigning a masculine gender and a feminine gender, respectively, to two identical uses of the same word.. At any rate, now my interest is piqued. In what context would ἡ ἄνθρωπος be used, and how would ...

ὄρνις vs ὄρνις

I'm puzzled by differing parsing information for what appears to be the same word in different texts of Matthew 23:37. How would it be that ὄρνις can be parsed as a masculine word in one text, and a feminine word in the other, when the spelling is exactly the same? Cutting and pasting the one into P...

Re: Greek collective term for dependent children

I appreciate the hints, but, thank God, I found my original note, and it's none of them. I apologize for leading you all astray in one way; it's a common word in the Scriptures after all. The word is νηπιοσ and as νήπιοι is usually translated infants. In Psalm 8:2 it translates the Hebrew word olim....

Re: Policy: B-Greek does require Greek

I use my three hard-copy interlinears extensively, although my Greek is becoming good enough that I occasionally resort directly to my copy of the UBS GNT. I do use the online interlinear, but mainly for Hebrew. A hard-copy interlinear a tool recommended (in fact, required for the Worksheets) by no ...

Greek collective term for dependent children

In my recent reading of Liddell, I ran across a word for dependent children, but lost the file I'd saved it in. As I recall, it isn't from a root that is usually associated with human offspring. It isn't found in the GNT, but I think it may be in the Breton LXX. I don't know how to find it again, sh...
