Re: McMaster & B-Greek

llsorenson: Perhaps we can suggest a few sites where B-Greek discussions gone-theological can go to discuss things from a theological perspective? I don't know where that would be, but I'm sure there are a few sites which would qualify. I have often recommended Barry Hofstetter's BibExegesis list (h...

Re: McMaster & B-Greek

Just to set the record straight, "Ancient Hebrew Poetry" is not a discussion list but rather is John Hobbins' own blog and its blog entries are directly controlled by the blogger. Blogs generally do invite reader comments, and such comments sometimes entail a good deal of dialogue about the original...

Re: McMaster & B-Greek

Jonathan Robie: I actually think the fact that we have not allowed this has been key to the success of B-Greek. There are lots of places to discuss theology and such. And that kind of discussion tends to overwhelm real discussion of Greek. We have well over 1500 subscribers worldwide to B-Greek, mos...

Re: Share your learning experience...and how it rates

Well, I've said it myself earlier in this thread that I think it is much, much harder to acquire competence in Greek without using it as a vehicle of active as well as passive participant in a communicative process. Greek composition has long been a staple of Classical Greek instruction in schools o...

Re: Policy: Unicode and Transliteration

There is, of course, the original B-Greek transliteration scheme set forth at http://ibiblio.org/bgreek/bgtransliteration.html and at the end of the old FAQ: http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/faq.html. For this too, there is the "Hopperizer" application at http://www.katabiblon.com/tools/perseus-hopperi...

Re: Share your learning experience...and how it rates

I'm sure a number of people would love to hear how others first learned ancient Greek, and what they think of it in retrospect. The point here is not to trash teachers or books (you can be frank about the books), but to try to highlight the kinds of exercises, activities, were more helpful than oth...

Re: Best textbooks (Beginning, Intermediate)

Louis, have you looked at the exercises in the "Grammar and Exercises" volume of the JACT Reading Greek textbook? A second edition was published in 2007 and there have been some improvements. I have never looked at McGaughey's workbook that was intended to accompany Funk's BIGHG, so I can't judge th...

Re: Best textbooks (Beginning, Intermediate)

We go through this exchange several times a year -- with a pretty much predictable array of broadly alternative answers to the question, each expressed with a high degree of confidence and often warning against the pitfalls of textbooks proposed or endorsed by other list-members. Nor do I except my ...

Re: Favorite Greek-related Blogs?

Those which I check regularly that most often cut to the core of Biblical Greek concerns are: Greek Language and Linguistics - Micheal Palmer (http://grklinguist.wordpress.com/) Included here is a good introductory online primer that's unfinished but very well-developed. Hypotyposeis - Stephen Carls...

Re: What Next after First Year Greek?

BDAG? Yes. Personally, I find this works best with a tagged GNT that can go to the BDAG definition by clicking on a word -- this in a software package (I use Accordance, but other Bible Software packages have the same feature, I imagine); I personally think that Louw & Nida is worth having also: it ...
