Sounds like 6 and 1/2 dozen of the other, then... :lol:
I think so. I do fine with my Android tablet and Android phone. But it's good to have an up-to-date version of Android, the early ones did not do well.

Re: Errors In Revelation?

One more time: the nouns in question are feminine and consistently take feminine modifiers. A small minority of adjectives in Greek are called two termination -- they have one set of endings for both the feminine and the masculine. When such an adjective modifies a second declension feminine noun, ...

Don't paint with too broad a brush. Francis Pang's work seems to be well received by many people here, for instance.

Re: Jn 11:56 OU MH expects negative answer?

John 11:56: ἐζήτουν οὖν τὸν Ἰησοῦν καὶ ἔλεγον μετ’ ἀλλήλων ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ ἑστηκότες· Τί δοκεῖ ὑμῖν; ὅτι οὐ μὴ ἔλθῃ εἰς τὴν ἑορτήν; John 18:11: εἶπεν οὖν ὁ Ἰησοῦς τῷ Πέτρῳ· Βάλε τὴν μάχαιραν εἰς τὴν θήκην· τὸ ποτήριον ὃ δέδωκέν μοι ὁ πατὴρ οὐ μὴ πίω αὐτό; And your question is about the combination of οὐ...

Re: Modal Verbs

Does anyone know where I can find a list of all modal verbs such as χρη, δεω, δυναμαι, οφειλω, etc? I looked all over and can’t find any such thing. Look at Section 4, "Modal predicates in Ancient Greek", in this paper: Where Does the Modality of Ancient Greek Modal Verbs Come From? The Relation be...

Re: Τί οὖν βαπτίζεις

A few more examples of τί; meaning "why?": Matthew 7:3 τί δὲ βλέπεις τὸ κάρφος τὸ ἐν τῷ ὀφθαλμῷ τοῦ  δελφοῦ σου, τὴν δὲ ἐν τῷ σῷ ὀφθαλμῷ δοκὸν οὐ κατανοεῖς; Matthew 11:9  ἀλλὰ τί ἐξήλθατε; προφήτην ἰδεῖν; ναί, λέγω ὑμῖν, καὶ περισσότερον προφήτου.

Re: Spelling in GNT editions (split from "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek")

Any chance you could just publish the dataset so anyone could use it in any lexicon? I'd find it very useful to have data that would show three things for each word: (1) surface spelling as found in the manuscript, (2) presumed lexical form, (3) BDAG equivalent. That would be useful in many projects.

Re: Errors In Revelation?

There may be a subtext worth addressing here. For some people, the idea that the Revelation might contain Greek obviously written by someone who did not speak it as a native language may imply there is something wrong with it. Think about that a little. Do you really want to dismiss everything writt...

Re: Middle and Passive Voice in Galatians 4:12-14

I think this is the money quote: If I had my preference, I'd mark all 'Middle' verbs MP1 and all 'Passive' verbs MP2, since both morphoparadigms are capable of bearing either middle or passive semantic force. So the distinction between these morphological forms doesn't tell us much. So ... it's best...
