Oops. That's wrong. The Unaspirated/Aspirated consonants are phonemic. The glottal stop is simply absent in Chichewa.

ὅταν Default for "WHEN...." in the future?

Funk says "860.4 A temporal clause with ὅταν (= ὅτε + ἄν) and the subjunctive corresponds to the protasis of a third class condition" "858. The assumption in a third class condition is left undetermined." But that doesn't tell me if ὅταν + Subjunctive is "marked" for any special emphasis. Is ὅταν w...

Re: Machen Erasmian: kinds of Erasmian and kinds of Restored

R. Buth, Thanks much for your reply. Somehow I missed it in August. 1. "oo" shouldn't be υ because ου is already "oo" [assuming you intended "oo" as 'boot' 'heavy shoe'] the solution is simply for students to hear alot of the sounds. the second solution is for the students to do what the Greeks them...

Re: Machen Erasmian: kinds of Erasmian and kinds of Restored

My post above contains the full story of considering what pronunciation system to use for my African students. After working with the Living Koine books more, I am coming to the conclusion that Restored Koine would work with THREE MODIFICATIONS: 1. Omicron+iota would be pronounced OY (toy) 2. Alpha+...

Study Session Intervals The "Spaced Learning" theory holds that the brain does as much work in rest as in concentrated st...
