Jason,

The accent is actually over the "e," but I don't know how to get my computer to do that here at the forum.

Thanks for the welcome.
No problem at all. <3

Welcome again.

Re: Danny Andre' Dixon

Hello, Danny.

Welcome back to B-Greek! Is it really Andre', or is it André?

Look forward to seeing more from you!

Re: Accents and article

Thank you, sir, much appreciated. One thing that awakened my interest was noticing that in the 2014 edition of John's Gospel he transliterated ἑώρακα in John 1.34 as ‘ophesthe’. I suggest a possible partial explanation here , based on the occurrence of ὄψεσθε in John 1.39. Andrew That's a grievous ...

Re: Question about the consonant "γ"

I realized that the consonant "γ" has three different types of pronunciation: ἀγγεῖον (ɡ), γυνὴ (ɣ) and ἐγένετο (ʝ). How do I know when to use each of these different sounds? The same way you know in English that "ng" is [ŋ], that "ga," "go" and "gu" is [g] and that "ge," "gi" and "gy" is [ʤ]. γγ [...

Re: Accents and article

Just to be clear: The accent on ἐμίσησάν με δωρεάν is correct. The acute on ἐμίσησάν comes from με .

Re: Is learning accents really important?

I was a senior in high school when I first read the accentuation rules in Mounce's grammar, and they made perfect sense to me very early on. I always considered it part of learning the language. :shrug:

Re: Paragraph breaks THGNT Mark 10:32

It was on sale at SBL for $15 (hardback) or $35 (fake leather). It is a beautiful book to hold in your hands, well bound, readable typeface, no clutter. They even put the introductory material at the end so that when you open it up, it opens up directly to the text. The punctuation is also distinct...

I intend to add the electronic version of THGNT to my workflow as soon as it becomes available.
It's already available at https://www.stepbible.com.

For example: https://www.stepbible.org/?q=version=TH ... ions=VHNUG

Notice that it's not got the paragraph divisions, though.

Re: Intro - Matt

Matt,

Best of luck in your studies!

We're starting a reading group on Jan 1 on Facebook to read through the whole Hebrew OT and Greek NT in a year. Maybe you'd be interested in joining in the Greek part? Or, reading the LXX while we read Hebrew?!

Regards,
Jason
