Re: NT Greek meets Semitic

The CBQ article that Randall Buth has pointed to answers (or gives its reasoned opinions on) a fair number of the questions you raise Stephen. You might not be able to get easy access to the article. As you know it is Australia Day today so (you having a barbie Stephen?) I might get an opportunity t...

Re: NT Greek meets Linguistics

Dr Buth: Can you provide us with some pointers towards work (preferably in English) that deals more adequately with bi- tri- lingualism in first century Judea/Galilee/Syria? Others: I remember on my previous stint on B-greek some years ago listening in to some very stimulating and robust discussions...

Re: NT Greek meets Linguistics

Some degree of Irony in this quotation: "In particular, among the synoptic Gospels (Marc, Luke and Matthews), various Semitisms in the Gospel of Marc and Luke show that the mother tongue of their authors was not Greek but Aramaic" It suggests that English is not the mother tongue of the paper's auth...

Re: NT Greek meets Linguistics

Thanks Stephen - some very very cool links embedded within the text of the essay (especially PROEIL Pragmatic Resources in Old Indo-European Languages. Oslo: Oslo University. Website: http://www.hf.uio.no/ifikk/english/research/projects/proiel/ ) Registration to access material is simple. Some inter...

Re: Apollonius Canon as Stated by Apollonius

Replying to my own post... Wikipedia and a PM from a list member pointed me towards the full text of Apollonius, but not the particular passage: http://schmidhauser.us/apollonius/works/ But my secular technical classical greek is such that those monkeys might be getting well through Hamlet before I'...

Apollonius Canon as Stated by Apollonius

Can anyone point out where in his works Apollonius states his famed canon? If it so happens that you have the greek (and english?) handy that might a help. I found: http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/b-greek/2011-February/055383.html However, though the comments are helpful they: (1) Don't actually ...

Re: Romans 15:13 & 33

Coming back to this after a while - her Wittgenstein quote was probably a classroom anecdote, but in the 1st Ed of "Relevance" she and Sperber say of genitives: "It is hard to believe that the genitive is ambigious, with as many senses as there are types of relationships it may be used to denote, or...
