Re: Ancient Greek for Everyone

https://ancientgreek.pressbooks.com This looks like it could be a very helpful beginning text. It includes readings from both classical and biblical Greek, has very clear explanations, and even reminds us that the subjunctive and the optative "tenses" really are aspect... :D I quite like it. I've r...

Re: When to Treat Participles as Finite Verbs, e.g., Luke 10:18

In other words, it is just as it is in English:

"She saw the children playing in the yard."

In this case, πεσόντα is telling us what Jesus saw τὸν σατανᾶν doing. It could simply be considered a circumstantial participle. He saw him as he fell.

Re: Greek NT and LXX for Kindle

Hi. I'd like to have a mobi version of OT interlinear, but couldn't find this one you mentioned. Would you provide us a link for downloading it? Was this the one you tried? Hi, Jonathan. I can't help but notice that he said "OT interlinear." I think he was asking for resources that haven't been pro...

Jason,
I have a long article on this in the Verbless Clause in BH volume (1999?). gadol ha-bayit has fronted 'gadol' for pragmatic effect.
I'm going to read your article now, which I see you have posted on your website.

Thanks.

Re: Expertise in Greek

[Note to Greek students: BH studies are almost as messed up as NTG. The field cannot definitely say whether he default way to say 'the house is big' is gadol ha-bayit or ha-bayit gadol, (הבית גדול).] Ps 48:2: גָּדוֹל יהוה וּמְהֻלָּל מְאֹד בְּעִיר אֱלֹהֵינוּ הַר־קָדְשׁוֹ Not יהוה גדול but גדול יהוה ...

Why would τ be pronounced as [d]?
In Modern Greek, τ is pronounced as [d] after a v. There is some evidence, I believe (Horrocks?), that it may have already happened in Koine times, as with παντα /panda/.
Interesting. I just use [t]. Shrug.

Re: Question about the consonant "γ"

Thanks for answering me. That helped me a lot. I would like to know where to find such information regarding other consonants in Koine Greec. Like the τ, π, κ, and all others. Have you checked Randall Buth's Ἡ Κοινὴ Προφορά – Koiné Pronunciation ? Yes. I already read this text. But it does not addr...

Re: Porter's SBL review of "The Greek Verb Revisited"

In Reading studies in Second Language Acquisition reading occurs when a person reads over 150fps. Sad to say, most profs do not 'read'. Perhaps one could make a little allowance for long strings of backgrounded phrases in a sentence, but that would not change the overall picture. Particularly at se...

Re: Question about the consonant "γ"

By the way, if you don't mind, what is your last name? We have a forum policy that one must use his or her real name to participate on the forum. I can add it to your signature, if you like (as you see mine), or we can change your username.

Thanks,
Jason
