Re: Linux GNT Lemma Search

Hmm, doesn't "offline" mean "without network access"? That's what installable Bible software does. Websites are for online access, right? Right. I think some of the websites are better than the free installable Bible software for this particular task. Then again, if he is comfortable with the shell...

Unfortunately, the OP says he needs offline access. Several websites let you do this.

I haven't looked for a few years - which of these allow search by lemma?
Sorry, I haven't either, but the engine is able to do lemma search if the text module includes lemmas. Some Greek modules have at least Strong's numbers which work as lemmas.

Re: Oxia vs tonos accent

If the texts look weird with an upright tonos the problem is in the font. Tonos and oxia should be indistinguishable, slanted acute mark. Therefore whether tonos or oxia is used is only an "implementation detail" which shouldn't concern readers. But it may have other unwanted consequences even if th...

Re: Grammaticalization of tense?

He speaks a private metalanguage known only to himself and his followers. Quite boldly stated. His metalanguage isn't private, rather it's the one which most people who have read grammar of any language can understand. It's the linguists who use metalanguage which isn't understood by the common peo...

Would it be helpful to get a reader's version of NA28 for regular devotional reading?
You can't go wrong with that (with NA28 or any other Greek edition) and it's the best service you can do for yourself if you use it regularly.

Re: Grammaticalization of tense?

the different tenses that might occur within a narrative are a function of what's more or less important from the speaker's point of view rather than an objective statement of what happened when. This is a misunderstanding from either your or the original writer's part. It may be about "background"...

Re: Grammaticalization of tense?

Greek tense is a morphological (grammatical) phenomenon rather than a temporal one. Rather "aspect (internal temporal constituency) is a morphological phenomenon in (Koine) Greek but tense (location in time) is not". But I don't agree with that statement and neither does Mike Aubrey as far as I kno...

Sounds weird. In my opinion the key to interpreting the sentence, either in the Psalms or in Paul, is not found in the grammar.
