Re: "Method 3" A New Way to Learn and Improve your Greek

I am an intermediate learner. I have just given the Method 3 a try using Mark Lightman's Hebrews 10:10ff example. I am entirely convinced it would work well with a learner like me. I am at the level that I could understand some of the relationship between phrases. But after reading it three times, I...

Re: Smyth "A Greek Grammar"

I'm wondering if anyone could compare and contrast Smyth's grammar with A.T. Robertson's. Thanks very much for the education we've enjoyed through this thread. I was inspired to print and bind myself a large print version of the 1920 edition of Smyth. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/e57sjebehEzOEd...

Learning Methods: Memorization of passages

I'm enjoying memorizing some NT passages in Greek using the Hoffman method of memorization. The method makes memorization much easier. The memorization itself has, I feel, given me a leap in my understanding of Greek. The nine passages I have memorized are short (one to three verses). I think a shor...

Re: Smyth "A Greek Grammar"

Thank you, that's a very helpful distinction. So, to consolidate things: Greek Grammar Smyth, Messing, 1956, 784 pages The standard for citation in academic work. According to the preface, this is virtually the same as the 1920 version. Printer's errors were corrected and some changes were made to t...

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...

Mark,
Amazon told me it shipped. That means anywhere from 5 days to 5 weeks later I'll get it. I'll let you know.
