This was already old news when I encountered it in the late 1980s.
It isn't so much that the ideas are new. You could probably trace them into the 1970s or maybe even earlier. It's just that semantics for biblical languages didn't really start talking about then until this century.

Re: What areas need updating in Silva?

That sounds like my chapter in Linguistics & Biblical Exegsis, which I excerpted here:

Silva himself, I'm told, considers his own book on semantics in great need of an updating.

Re: Finding Old Greek-Latin Lexicons

I don't know whether Ryan has included Latin, but the best online source for ancient lexica is Ryan Baumann's:

Re: "Prepositional Phrases" and Syntax

Thats really helpful, thanks for your reply. I take it from your response that technically both are possible—because you had to provide argumentation to demonstrate why your reading of the passage (and mine) was the correct option. I wouldn't even take the accordance diagrammer's analysis as even t...

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.

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...
