Jason,
I have a long article on this in the Verbless Clause in BH volume (1999?). gadol ha-bayit has fronted 'gadol' for pragmatic effect.
I'm going to read your article now, which I see you have posted on your website.

Thanks.

Re: Expertise in Greek

[Note to Greek students: BH studies are almost as messed up as NTG. The field cannot definitely say whether he default way to say 'the house is big' is gadol ha-bayit or ha-bayit gadol, (הבית גדול).] Ps 48:2: גָּדוֹל יהוה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַר־קָדְשׁוֹ Not יהוה גדול but גדול יהוה ...

Why would τ be pronounced as [d]?
In Modern Greek, τ is pronounced as [d] after a v. There is some evidence, I believe (Horrocks?), that it may have already happened in Koine times, as with παντα /panda/.
Interesting. I just use [t]. Shrug.

Re: Question about the consonant "γ"

Thanks for answering me. That helped me a lot. I would like to know where to find such information regarding other consonants in Koine Greec. Like the τ, π, κ, and all others. Have you checked Randall Buth's Ἡ Κοινὴ Προφορά – Koiné Pronunciation ? Yes. I already read this text. But it does not addr...

Re: Porter's SBL review of "The Greek Verb Revisited"

In Reading studies in Second Language Acquisition reading occurs when a person reads over 150fps. Sad to say, most profs do not 'read'. Perhaps one could make a little allowance for long strings of backgrounded phrases in a sentence, but that would not change the overall picture. Particularly at se...

Re: Question about the consonant "γ"

By the way, if you don't mind, what is your last name? We have a forum policy that one must use his or her real name to participate on the forum. I can add it to your signature, if you like (as you see mine), or we can change your username.

Thanks,
Jason

Jason,

The accent is actually over the "e," but I don't know how to get my computer to do that here at the forum.

Thanks for the welcome.
No problem at all. <3

Welcome again.

Re: Accents and article

Thank you, sir, much appreciated. One thing that awakened my interest was noticing that in the 2014 edition of John's Gospel he transliterated ἑώρακα in John 1.34 as ‘ophesthe’. I suggest a possible partial explanation here , based on the occurrence of ὄψεσθε in John 1.39. Andrew That's a grievous ...
