Just in case someone doesn't have JSTOR access but might have access to articles through another medium:
If you sign up for an individual JSTOR account you can access up to three articles online each month. Not great for doing research, but better than nothing.

Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek

I wrote up some first impressions of the now published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek.

Re: 2 Maccabees 3:11 Gottingen text

οὐχ ὡς is the Logos edition, too.

I'm not well versed in parsing the Gottingen apparatus, but here's what it says:
pr. και L′−62 46-52 58 311 LaXBM Sy | ὡς διαβάλλων ἦν] ουτως διαβαλλων A; ωσπερ ην διαβαλων L′ (-βολων 19; -βαλλων 542)
Seems legit.

Re: 1Peter 3,20 force of the prepositional phrase

Correct me if I'm wrong, but boats travel δι᾽ ὕδατος, do they not?

And was not Noah, well, rescued via boat?

Re: Corpus Linguistics and the Greek of the New Testament

I have a copy sitting in a box in a closet somewhere. It's sort of an odd book--a mix of good ideas and bad ones. But you'd need a lot of background reading in order determine which is which.

παρακαλοῦντες doesn't need anything supplied at all. Its a reciprocal middle.
Middle? Looks active to me.
Sigh. Yes. Yes it is. Post-travel brain fog?

Re: Tenses

I haven't read Rijksbaron, but I guess from the tables you posted that he laid out the usual explanation of the tenses ie. temporals in the indicative, state after a perfect, etc. Here's the thing about stativity after an action though, and one of the writers in Greek Verb Revisited mentioned this ...

Re: Tenses

I've discovered that Rijksbaron is one of the editors of the very recently published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek . It's advertised as shedding light from modern linguistics on all aspects of classical Greek grammar ... I recommend reading some of it first before laying out the cash. My exp...
