Re: Learning Greek on one's own

I hope to do Hebrew after this. Hi, Peter. Let me know when you get to Hebrew. I'll try to give you some pointers, and I'll answer any Hebrew questions that might come your way. Have you thought about which text you'd like to work through for Hebrew? In college, we used Seow's grammar. I've also go...

Re: Learning Greek on one's own

Susan, I started out a self-studier. I went through 20 chapters of Mounce on my own at the age of 17. I literally memorized the book, all of the paradigms of nouns and adjectives, all of the verb forms, the exact chapter that the vocab was contained in, the contents of each "Exegetical Insight" sect...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

It looks like fine to me in Arial Unicode MS, but the example does not include the holam, which is the vowel point that fonts mess up (in my experience). Stephen (But I prefer Tahoma to Arial, anyway.) As an example of some typical problem areas, we could use תִּמְלֹ֣ךְ with a dagesh, holam, raised...

Re: How does Aquila translate Hebrew almah in his text?

I found that information in the Goettingen edition in Logos (by far the best price for the set). Isaiah is in volume 2 of Field, at http://ia700208.us.archive.org/17/items/origenhexapla02unknuoft/origenhexapla02unknuoft.pdf around page 500. Hi, Ken. I followed the first link you posted above and do...

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

How does the Hebrew look in http://ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=260&p=1074&sid=4f0a20fc4f76993cbdae4c7ed4b263a6#p1064 I think Arial Unicode MS is the culprit, spacing the vowel points. Could we please place Tahoma before Arial Unicode MS in the font list? On my end, the Hebrew looks...

Re: Mt 1:19 AUTHN objcet or subject

How about taking this as the subject of the infinitive PARADEIGMATISAI? In that case, it would make sense to see Joseph did not want to see her bring disgrace on her family . Oun Kwon Hi, Oun. If you don't mind me asking, have you thought about what Carl Conrad suggested above ? Oun, have you ever ...

Re: The Daily Dozen

Subscribing.

I'm eager for the replies. I'm not the master reviewer that I'd like to be. I kinda depend on my mind to hold on to things more than I should.

Thanks for starting this up, since I'll be one to reap the benefit of others' intuition and trial-and-error. :)

Regards,
Jason Hare

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

χαίρετε, ὦ φίλοι.

I use Firefox (most updated) on Windows 7, and it looks great for me with Arial Unicode in both the textbox and regularly. So far, so good.

Re: Double Negatives (was John 14:30)

Nevertheless, I think the genre is different and I think that the formulation in 1 John 1:5 is rhetorically emphatic. Perhaps that's a subjective judgment, but it sure seems that way to me. Oh, I can't disagree. It would have been enough to say, even, καὶ σκοτία ἐν αὐτῷ οὐκ ἔστιν. That would have b...
