Re: εἶπον vs. εἶπαν

perhaps in some dialect the α sounded like ο? In antiquity, the various Greek dialects kept 'a' separate from 'o'. The closest vowel to 'a' was 'ω' but 'ω' merged with 'o' before New Testament times and 'a' was always kept distinct from 'o' . There is one dialect HOWEVER where 'a' and 'o' are confu...

Re: Is Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) Relevant to Koine'?

One should add that "meaning" of a word in any language is not just its definition but its relationship to other words that could have been chosen, potentially. Thus, if one does not know the choices available, one does not really understand or grasp a particular word. And no, Louw-Nida "Semantic Do...

Re: Is Liddell-Scott-Jones (LSJ) Relevant to Koine'?

LSJM is absolutely relevant. First of all--BDAG does not list all of the vocabulary necessary for Koine. There are tens-of-thousands of words not in BDAG that will show up in Josephus, Philo, Plutarch, Epictetus, Dio Chrysostom, Pausanius, Lucian, Galen, Philostratus, καὶ τὰ λοιπά. On the other hand...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

I choose Westcott-Hort at times for the simple reason that it is/was copyright free. It is functionally the same as NA28 or SBL. Over the years, however, I have moved more in the direction of accepting the plausability and practicality of the Byzantine Text. I think that Maurice Robinson's 54-page e...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

But my English is not good. I am sorry for not quite understanding "not as they read when unreliable" In many places, the readings that you are using do not accent the correct syllables, and the timing and intonation do not always match the content and focus of the writings. Consequently, the readi...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Everything you want in one location: https://www.stepbible.org/?q=version=WHNU|reference=Rom.1|version=Byz&options=VNH Thank you, C. S. Bartholomew. But this doesn't have pronunciation marks. I want the texts look like these: http://www.greekbible.com/index.php or https://www.academic-bible.com/en/...

No, I don't recommend Marilyn's reading but you must read the PDF to understand why.

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

The relatively short PDF is meant to be read and understood so that the data and discussions may be applied to questions in the field. I doubt if Marilyn' s name would need citing in the PDF, so there is no point in searching for it, but every point in reading the document.

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

Hi, I only listened a sentence of M. Robinson's, what do you think about Marilyn's reading? The accent is ok and one notes, that it is devotional. I had nothing against it, besides that it is a voice of woman. So, according to you I should stay with her? *** Thanks for that link, I will check that....

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

Well, if that's what your teacher insists on Like I said, I've never understood the obsession to get it wrong, to create a distinctly non-Greek Greek NT. See the PDF at biblicallanguagecenter that documents the problems. Sort of like a sales person proudly claiming "This is real fox leather, it say...
