Re: Postclassical Greek: Contemporary Approaches into Philology and Linguistics

Another one that I am waiting to see come out is below. I don't have any real data for it at the moment, but worth keeping on the radar. Some sites list it as a 2019 publication, but when I couldn't locate it I messaged Dr Bentein on Academia.edu and he has informed me that it is still forthcoming B...

Postclassical Greek: Contemporary Approaches into Philology and Linguistics

I came across this one a while back - to be released in Feb. I https://www.amazon.co.uk/Postclassical-Greek-Contemporary-Linguistics-Linguistics/dp/3110676729/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=greek+linguistics&qid=1578928131&sr=8-4 Unfortunately I can't find a publisher blurb that actually comments on the specif...

Btw Barry (sorry Matthew I tend to hijack threads)
Not at all, thanks for your input.
I am definitely not going to try to start reading text like Hierosolymitanus without a transcription!

since I often will camp out on a stuck spot until I get it resolved in my own mind.
Well it’s encouraging that even seasoned Greek readers like you still occasionally hit something you find awkward!

Re: 1 Clement 20:5 - ἀβύσσων τε ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ νερτέρων ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα

Thanks both for the feedback The preceding verses are similarly elliptical and play off a clearly demarcated duality in the first part of the sentence with a unity in the second part. The way you bundled up the substantives would break this rhythm. I didn't think about that. I was getting too caught...

1 Clement 20:5 - ἀβύσσων τε ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ νερτέρων ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα

Sorry all, another query on 1 Clement. ἀβύσσων τε ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ νερτέρων ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα τοῖς αὐτοῖς συνέχεται προστάγμασιν. The way that I read this is that ἀβύσσων τε καὶ νερτέρων is to be taken as a unit modified by ἀνεξιχνίαστα καὶ ἀνεκδιήγητα κρίματα with an elipsis of the article. In th...

Re: τὰ χείλη ἡμῶν παρ᾿ ἡμῖν ἐστίν

Thanks Barry. I looked through BDAG and those entries still didn't make the usage very clear for me. Sometimes I find the BDAG entries too extensive and need things broken down into smaller/simpler info. The notion of close association with the dative is the best fit I found, but still seemed odd. h...

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

So far, I haven't persuaded myself to pay for BDAG in electronic form, since I have the hardbound book BDAG in olivetree is great as that is where I primarily do my NT reading. Just being able to click a word and get the lexical information is massively helpful. I also have a copy in Accordance - I...

Re: τὰ χείλη ἡμῶν παρ᾿ ἡμῖν ἐστίν

Thanks Timothy, I didn't think to check the source text. Really need to do better digging in the future. So, the LXX has para + gen while clement uses the dative. Unfortunately, now I am puzzled regarding both of these ἐξολεθρεύσαι κύριος πάντα τὰ χείλη τὰ δόλια † † καὶ γλῶσσαν μεγαλορήμονα † 5 τοὺς...
