Re: Rendering imperfective into English (an English question?)

It gives a good overview of the history of the ingressive imperfect. I think some of the examples he gives of ingressive imperfects are debatable. Can we get rid of the ingressive imperfect entirely? I'm skeptical, but open. For what it's worth, Rijksbaron changed his mind about the inceptive imper...

Re: "We have no such custom" as being contentious???

Does it even make sense that being contentious is a "custom"?

Re: εἶπον vs. εἶπαν

What do you do about scribal mistakes? I'm sure that's the explanation for οπο.

Re: εἶπον vs. εἶπαν

I'm not Randy Buth, who may be too busy to respond. I do know that his work on this is in line with current scholarship. He's not an idiosyncratic outlier, but rather a fairly mainstream proponent of the field as it currently exists. The work on Koine phonology is based mainly on the patterns of err...

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

2. Related to this, there is anacoluthon in Paul and even more so in Peter with participles that have no direct connection to a finite verb. This would be my preferred explanation, and not terribly different from: (2) this is a sentence fragment produced in normal speech. Anacolutha in Paul is more...

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

I can't read the Greek text in that article, which doesn't look like Unicode. Do I have to install a particular font? Maybe I've gotten too much practice reading pre-Unicode fonts, but the Greek didn't seem that difficult, and everything's cited so you can look up the Greek for yourself. But yes ex...

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

Here's a lengthy article on the imperatival participle and a classification that 2 Cor 8:24 is a valid example of it: https://bible.org/article/imperatival-p ... -testament

Disclaimer: briefly scanned the article for relevance, not correctness.

Re: semantics/pragmatics

Do you have a link to the dissertation or some of the cites? I'm not familiar with the secondary literature he's citing.
