Re: 2 Cor 8:24 - main verb of ἐνδεικνύμενοι?

Two options from my perspective:

(1) there is no verb simply because the clause the participial clause depends on has a non-verbal predicate.
(2) this is a sentence fragment produced in normal speech.

Re: 2 Cor 8:24 - main verb of ἐνδεικνύμενοι?

Looks like the manuscript tradition sees the same issue that you do.

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

The idea is not implausible, I can say that. The 19th century grammarians did not have the advantage of the documentary papyri. I wonder if the claim holds up if those are taken into account? Thackeray cites Mayser for the papyri, but he doesn't provide much data for the question: https://archive.o...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

And neither does LSJ give any indication that different spellings of the perfect have different transitivities. Were you looking at the entry for ἐξίστημι? At least under ἵστημι different forms are given, including ἕστακα in the Causal section, together with indication of occurrences of some of its...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

Then I looked more carefully at what is said in the quote. I checked Winer-Schmiedel and discovered there a footnote referring to transitive examples in LXX. See the latter part of footnote 4 in https://archive.org/stream/grammatikdesneu00schmgoog#page/n138/mode/2up On checking 1 Sam 15.12 in Rahlf...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

Often this kind of thing traces back to one influential person who originally made the claim, but I'm not about to ferret that one out. In this case, I think it's being done without thought or awareness of the issue. The SIL Exegetical Summary on Acts 1-14 doesn't even make mention of it. And they'...

Re: ἐξίστημι in Acts 8:11

It's intransitive. ἱστήμι and its derivatives are causative in the present and anticausative in the perfect. So: ἵστημι <> ἕστηκα make stand <> am standing ὑφίστημι <> ὑφέστηκα make formed <> am formed ἀφίστημι <> ἀφέστηκα make go away <> am away Likewise: ἐξίστημι <> ἐξέστηκα make amazed <> am amaz...

Re: Hayes - Analysis of Attributive Participle and Relative Clause

Not going to lie, I winced at that pun. Yeah. It was initially accidental, but when I realized it was there, I doubled down. So it doesn’t mean that it is a choice that is made in order to bring about one rather than another effect? Hayes is in effect stating that in Koine they would be able to pro...

Re: Hayes - Analysis of Attributive Participle and Relative Clause

'Strategy' is essentially a typological term, a means for describing how one language works relative (heh.) to other languages.

The article is never indefinite. We don't call it a 'definite article' simply because there is no indefinite article
Well...you don't...
