Re: The two-fold and structured moieties of Koine Greek.

Stephen,
So, is this accurate? In the Matt 6:24-26 selection, I was looking for a back and forth pattern of thoughts and seeing coupling of general-specific statements. You are seeing the coupling of general-specific within statements based on the quality of the words used.

Re: The two-fold and structured moieties of Koine Greek.

A name for the phenomenon: "General-Specific Coupling" In the example below, am I seeing what you are describing, Stephen? Matthew 6:24-26 GENERAL Οὐδεὶς δύναται δυσὶ κυρίοις δουλεύειν· ἢ γὰρ τὸν ἕνα μισήσει καὶ τὸν ἕτερον ἀγαπήσει, ἢ ἑνὸς ἀνθέξεται καὶ τοῦ ἑτέρου καταφρονήσει. [“No one can serve tw...

Re: The two-fold and structured moieties of Koine Greek.

Well done to both Robie and Hughes. You had a little conflict and didn't shy from giving your opinion. Stephen, your comments on culture are interesting and jibe with what I've seen from visits back to the USA. It's a newish phenomenon, I think. From my sensibilities, Jonathan's moderation wasn't ne...

Re: What does "marked" mean in a verbal context?

I’m disappointed to hear that the term “markedness” has been used incorrectly and misleadingly by NT scholars. Well, even if it is a wrong term, I learned from what was lumped under that wrong term in reading Discourse Grammar. “To summarize, markedness theory presupposes that one member of a set is...

Re: Where Are Your Keys' Universal Speed Curriculum

Sign language, custom created gestures, and imprompt gestures are hugely helpful in getting meaning into your head without resort to a second language. That said, I think it should be used when helpful and sparingly. A WAYK guru watched some of my lessons and approved of my sparing use of sign langu...

Re: Reader's Editions of the Greek New Testament

I like the NET NA27, reviewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0OYp-84zLc It's a diglot, English on one page, Greek on the other. The translation notes are an added bonus. Using a diglot works better for me than a reader. I can keep my brain in Greek mode even if I need to glance at the Englis...
