Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Yes, they become appositional.

Incidentally, your spelling of ζητειν [ζειτειν] reflects a non-Koine pronunciation, 5c BCE. The first-century ει was not first-century η, but ι. First century phonetics were IPA: [zetin].

Re: Acts 17:27 - infinitives

Yes, Culy and Parsons are correct. Why? Because the ᾽times and boundaries' don't do the seeking, people do the seeking, which implicitly links back to the first infinitive phrase of 17.26 κατοικεῖν. In a fully punctuated text a comma could be used to separate the ορισας ... αυτῶν phrase from ζητεῖν....

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

ὁ ἄνθρωπος περιεπάτει ἐγὼ εἶδον ὅτι ὁ ἄνθρωπος περιεπάτει ἐγὼ εἶδον τὸν ἄνθρωπον περιπατοῦντα In the third line the adjective περιπατοῦντα is part of an embedded object phrase/clause and "in the predicate position," but it is not at adverb to εἶδον or adverbial. I find "adverbial participle" to be ...

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

Infinitives and even futures are gone in ModernGr. I'm not sure "trouble" would be related to analyzing "adjective" vs "adverbial" participles. Participles had clear adjectival morphology. The reason appears to be related to what could have been seen as excessive subordination/embedding within a mai...

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

Participles are adjectives, ἐπίθετα if you will. Build from there.

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

Hopefully the line: "One father writes to his OIEIWI, 100 CE." was clear to most old-timers on this list. To clarify just in case, the father wrote in good first-century phonetic spelling to his son, to his υἱῷ, plus a silent historical dative marker (-I). The whole short papyrus is worth reading in...

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

Check out Select Papyri, v. 1 LOEB.
You will need to do some library work with Oxyrrhyncus Papyri for pictures, then search data banks online. Some amusing situations are in that papyri volume. One father writes to his OIEIWI, 100 CE. That should get your students attention.
