Re: Articular Abstract Nouns

First, just so we're clear, I'm not advocating a particular view, but simply asking a question about statements in Wallace's grammar as they relate to anarthrous abstract nouns. With that in mind, the word κοπος is a perfect example of what I'm asking about. In all the examples you gave where the no...

Re: Articular Abstract Nouns

Stephen, the type of nouns Wallace deals with and the ones I'm primarily asking about are those whose abstractness are not in question. The following is a representative list: ἀνομία, σωτηρία, σοφίᾳ, ἀγάπη, πονηρόν, ἀγαθός, προσευχή, χάρις, ἀλήθεια, ἀδικία, ἐλευθερία, πίστις, κόπος. The majority of ...

Re: Articular Abstract Nouns

Wes, thank you for the reply, it was indeed helpful. I'm just curious as to what formed the basis for the statements about the articular abstracts if they don't appear to have much if any support from the rest of the scholarly community. Michael, thank you as well for your input. Perhaps the phrase ...

Articular Abstract Nouns

In Dan Wallace's renowned work Greek Grammar Beyond The Basics, Wallace attaches definite grammatical significance to articular abstract nouns, stating, "Usually, the article with the abstract noun fits under the par excellence or well-known categories..." [p. 226] Yet on p. 249 when dealing with an...

κολασις vs κολαζω

For the word κολάζω, both BDAG and Kittel's give the meaning of "to punish" although Kittel's gives this as the figurative meaning, the literal being "to lop off." For κολασις, both give the meaning of "punishment" but unlike κολάζω, Kittel's gives no other meaning. This seems to suggest that althou...

Septuaginta Editio Altera - Isaiah 44:24

If anyone owns this version of the LXX, I was wondering if they could tell me exactly how it reads at Isaiah 44:24.
Thanks,

Re: εἰμί vs γίνομαι

Thanks guys for your input. I do own a number of lexicons, BDAG and Kittel's being among them. The reason I posted the question was really to double check myself. Of course, I knew that although the two verbs were related, in that that both have to do with being, they had no strict semantic equivale...

εἰμί vs γίνομαι

Here's a simple question. Are ειμί and γίνομαι synonyms?
