Re: Proofreading your Greek

Use the Hopperizer to check your work. http://www.katabiblon.com/tools/perseus-hopperizer/index.php . Paste in your text, click "Link Only," and then beautify. Then click on every word and see if Perseus' Hopper will parse your word. A link that is clicked changes color, so you know when you have cl...

Re: Looking up English words derived from Greek

Randall Buth sent me a file one called GreekCognates.pdf. It has 11 pages of Συγγενικαὶ Λέξεις. But the English gloss is only filled out for the alphas. That is the only list I know of....

Re: ποδήρη (Revelation 1:13)

The η is a contraction of ε-α. Note: the α is found in the singular m/f accusative, and also the neuter plural vocative, nominative, and accusative, and that gives that form several possible parsings. Look at this link: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?l=alhqh&la=greek . Note the top five e...

Re: How hard to learn Latin?

In the US, the University of Kentucky teaches Latin as a living language - or at least has conversational seminars See

Re: How hard to learn Latin?

Barry wrote I found beginning Greek more difficult than beginning Latin, but I found reading "real" Latin literature more difficult than Greek. Why? Latin, particularly Classical, is a relatively word poor language, so that individual lexical items tend have a wide semantic range. This can make it d...

Re: Audio of Revelation?

I think a recording of Revelations in Buth's Restored Koine would be great. John Schwandt has recorded the whole NT Koine text in a restored Koine Greek pronunciation for Logos. Logos Software ( https://www.logos.com/product/45485/greek-pronunciations-dataset ) has recordings by John Schwandt of Era...

Re: How hard to learn Latin?

I never studied languages in High School. In 1976-1977, I learned NT Greek using Sumner's textbook taught by a classic grammar-translation teacher. I then took a 2nd year college Greek class studying Galations. The summer between my 2nd and 3rd year of college (1978), I went to the University of Min...

Re: Most Commonly Used Beginning Greek Grammars?

One publication that talked about Greek textbooks is no longer published, the publication Classical World . It seems this publication ended in 2009, but see http://caas-cw.org/wp/ for further links - not sure these are the same sites. Here is a link to some of the Classical World publications: http:...

Re: Mark 15:2 συ λέγεις

Would we translate this as "So you say" with an emphasis on "you." Or would it be better to take it as "You said it, not me (I)"? Here is a couple of commentary comments. Word Biblical Commentary says nothing relevant. Cranfield in his commentary on Mark says to look at ἐγώ εἰμι in Mark 14.62. That ...

Re: Most Commonly Used Beginning Greek Grammars?

I believe one of the US association of classical groups keeps book statistics for both classical and NT Greek textbooks. That would be the place to start.
