Re: Punctuation and Luke 2:22

Thanks Robert. I wasn’t suggesting that such a reading should be used, more wondering if I was off base in my assumption that the movement doesn’t render it syntactically incorrect. Basically, would it be bad Greek to punctuate with the moved comma. The fact that every translation I have read and th...

Punctuation and Luke 2:22

Καὶ ὅτε ἐπλήσθησαν αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ καθαρισμοῦ ⸀αὐτῶν κατὰ τὸν νόμον Μωϋσέως, ἀνήγαγον αὐτὸν εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα παραστῆσαι τῷ κυρίῳ This isn’t a question about the appropriate English punctuation so much as it is about the meaning of the Greek if the punctuation is changed I have been looking at this passa...

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

Thanks Ryan. I had previously read Danone’s work but remembered it as case-frame analysis and forgot he is explicitly using construction grammar in his work. Guess that means I have to reread it as I have forgotten that
Appreciate the help. I will watch those videos when I get the chance

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

Finally settled on construction grammar and am finding the introductory works really interesting. I have bought a number of general books on it such as the oxford handbook (found a surprisingly/comparatively cheap one on abebooks). I am going to put some work in on trying to find papers / books appl...

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

That’s great, I found him really gracious and willing to share his time. Let me know if I am well off base, would be good to know if I have misunderstood him!

Re: Peters' Thesis: The Greek Article

I read his thesis with interest some time back and found some things interesting. One example being that morphologically the definite article seems closer to the relative pronoun, and syntactically it is found with other determiners but not with the relative pronoun. This is suggestive of a link bet...
