Re: Can a genitive be both objective and subjective?

I was just reviewing the genitive on this site: https://www.ntgreek.org/pdf/genitive_case.pdf It appears they suggest that there exists a "plenary genitive" that is both. Is this chart controversial/wrong or am I missing some naunce? It's uncontroversially wrong. :D Wallace, who came up with the "p...

Re: ἔξω an adverb (more or less)

One thing here that's important is the question of whether ἔξω is functioning as a preposition in a given context. When word is in transition to preposition, it's going to have usage in both part-of-speech domains. Cf. English than , which is currently working on this transition in English from a co...

Re: Policy: Let the moderators do the moderating

B-Greek has always been low volume, and there has always been someone saying that it was dying, that it was too restrictive, etc. There are also more alternatives these days, including various Facebook groups. I think there are still things that work better in this kind of forum, and we continue to...

Thanks for both suggestions Mike. I will get onto them (based on the price I will be getting the kindle version only on the first link!!!!)
Used is $14! Always buy used for hardcovers. You then have a chance of getting a first printing that's sewn rather than glued.

Re: Works on the infinitive

Burke's book isn't great. There isn't a lot out there though on Greek specifically. I would, however, highly recommend Nikolaeva's edited volume: Finiteness: Theoretical and Empirical Foundations https://amzn.to/2M6XyWe And Sonia Cristofaro has some essays/articles on infinitive complementation (as ...

Re: Verb inside prep phrase: Acts 1:5

is this normal syntax in Koine? Yes. is this Luke showing off his education? :-) Yes. If this is not normal usage, then what is being highlighted by the author? I take these sort of structures as syntactic evidence of the Greek's prosodic structure. There's literature on this, but there is no satis...

Re: John 4:34… ἵνα ποιῶ …καὶ τελειώσω

But the English and other translations of the verse translate ἵνα in a sense that does not denote purpose or result, but rather definition: “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” (NIV) Hi Alan, English infinitive constructions readily take purpose meaning. Indeed, th...

Re: Intro D Brown - help re Root words

Roots are an unreliable source of information about the meaning of words. The only wany to determine the meaning of a word is its own use in context, not his roots or etymology.

Best spend your time studying word meaning elsewhere.

Re: Did Paul read Zachariah 14:9 LXX as "all in all"? If so, how?

Does it need a background? I don't see Zech 14:9 getting you there. εἷς, καὶ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ is quite different from ἕν πάντα ἐν πᾶνσιν. For one, Paul's describing something that has not happened yet that ought to happen (ἵνα), where ask Zechariah 14:9 is an already existing state describing God's un...
