Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

Hi Ruth,

You aren't late to the conversation, we are just gathering information to discuss.

I don't know much about iconicity, but split constituents do exist in Greek, and other languages have phenomena like separable verbs.

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

I did notice that Matthew 5:36 is not included in these results, that's because the treebank analyzes it differently. Hmm. Maybe later, if you have time, I wonder if it would be possible to run a search that would include the pattern in Matt. 5:36, too. Actually, I was fooled by my own output. It's...

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

I can't easily do queries that find split constituents vs. constituents that wholly precede the verb, but in reading in the next chapter of Matthew this morning, I ran across an almost-parallel example with a coordinating conjunction: οὐ δύνασθε θεῷ δουλεύειν καὶ μαμωνᾷ. (Matt. 6:24 BGT) Not all ot...

Re: Exploring Syntax with Lowfat Treebanks and Jupyter Notebooks

I have now added a blog post to explain what a Jupyter notebook is and how it is used, where it is used for Biblical Hebrew linguistics, etc.

Exploring Syntax with Lowfat Treebanks and Jupyter Notebooks

I mentioned in another thread that I am working on an environment for exploring Greek syntax using the Lowfat trees and simple queries. I will be blogging about this soon, but this Jupyter notebook is a teaser for those who are curious: Tutorial: Greek Syntax Queries using Lowfat and Jupyter Noteboo...

Back in 2010, I did some hypothesizing with pronoun data, though I didn't mention Wackernagel: https://koine-greek.com/studies-in-gree ... ent-order/
Thanks - this looks very helpful. I remember seeing this go by, but I wasn't paying enough attention at the time.

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

Ah. I get it. We're talking about different things. I'm talking about the word order of enclitics within the clauses (e.g. Wackernagel's Law). Smyth is just talking about where and when certain accents do or do not occur. Ah, so THAT's what you're talking about. I'll have to read up on Wackernagel'...

Re: Καὶ ἦν διδάσκων τὸ καθʼ ἡμέραν ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ

I am slightly puzzled by the usage of the article before the prepositional phrase in Luke 19:47. I understand that one use may be to substantivize/nominalise the prepositional phrase. Does this therefore make the teaching being referred to something more concrete/consistent than omitting the articl...

Re: syntax of disjunctive phrase (Matt. 5:36)

We have data on information structure and syntax. What would we need to know about prosody? The traditional accounting of enclitics is straightforward, but I get the impression you think we need something beyond that. I don't know how to answer that. In your view, what is the traditional account of...
