To give a recommendation: Crellin, R. 2016. The Syntax and Semantics of the Perfect Active in  Literary Koine Greek. Publications of the Philological Society 47.

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

I consider the last statement of Randall to be a good and compact kind of definition of the force of the perfect: "So the perfect includes a 'perfective' component, as a minimum, and it also includes some kind of continuation of that 'perfective' component, whether as 'stative' or 'resultative'. I a...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

Dear friends, Mike said: "Peter, maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying, but the ancient grammarians knew about aspect and knew that it is encoded on the verb". I was, context should have made it clear, esp. referring to the perfect-imperfect distinction of Con Camp. as main theory of explain...

Re: Opinions about the book "Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek"

As I see I have to underline what Mike wrote and being a linguist myself I just can shake head what damage Porter and Campbell brought in the debate on Greek. The distinction between perfective and imperfective Verbal aspect is nothing the Greek language is all about, and of course never encoded in ...

Re: Help needed in Rev

Thank you! Euclid is available online (in German, I think probably in English as well) - the Greek might be a bit confusing at the first glance. But I understand the sentence as a mathematical sign of equation (as a "="). So transferred to Rev (and Joh often places numbers on the left, to stress it)...

Re: Help needed in Rev

>Is this the reading in the majority of these types of manuscripts? According to the new Text und Textwert volume and as known before, the majority in the revelation is divided between the three lines of K-Andrew-Complutensis and the reading with the number 12 is best attested, left out, probably be...

Re: Help needed in Rev

So i did some TLG research and give another and I hope better solution: A parallel in Euclid, Elements Demonstratio 10.9 shows this: πέντε ἄρα τὰ ἀπὸ τῆς ΚΛ...

Help needed in Rev

Dear friends, can anyone help me to understand the last sentence in Revelation 21:16 (the Byz reading is the δώδεκα, left out by TR/NA, as it was too difficult, I think, but I want to translate Byz, with the number 12) : Καὶ ἡ πόλις τετράγωνος κεῖται, καὶ τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς ὅσον τὸ πλάτος. Καὶ ἐμέτρησεν...

Reference of ἄξιοί in Rev 16,16

Dear friends, I stumbled reading the following sentence: ὅτι αἷμα ἁγίων καὶ προφητῶν ἐξέχεαν, καὶ αἷμα αὐτοῖς ἔδωκας πιεῖν· ἄξιοί εἰσιν. for they have poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; they are worthy. How is the "ἄξιοί εἰσιν" connected to the text...
