Re: Placement of adverb

David, what do you mean by head noun is not in a prepositional clause?

Re: δε and ἀλλα

I would choose "οι δε μαθηται" for your example, but I could be wrong.. David, According to Eli's explanation, ἀλλὰ is one that “introduces a correction of the expectation created by the first conjunct; an incorrect expectation is cancelled and a proper expectation is put in its place. In this case...

In your sentence (is that from Machen?) I would use ἀλλά.

Re: δε and ἀλλα

He describes ἀλλὰ as a “global marker of contrast”, one that “introduces a correction of the expectation created by the first conjunct; an incorrect expectation is cancelled and a proper expectation is put in its place.”" If a writer uses ἀλλα he's pointing at the contrast. δε is more delicate than...

Please don't; like the earlier two, they do not sound like Greek to me
After seeing your explanation, I think I should ignore the two examples from the book.

Placement of οὐκετι is fine although you need to add an article before ἁμαρτιας (or delete the one before σκοτιᾳ).

Re: Nominative use of αὐτος

David, Thank you for the examples and explanation. What I mean, in fact, should be "using αὐτος in the attribute or predicate position". Now I understand that it should conform to the case, number and gender. However, I came across the following examples under the same section that explain the use o...
