Re: English-greek lexicon!?

Woodhouse is still the standard, since really nothing in English has been published since. Although a bit dated, it's still quite helpful. Why aren't there more such lexicons? Mainly because the vast majority of people working with the language work from Greek to English, and composition is somewhat...

Re: "the monosemic nature of discourse markers"

Good point Stirling, I misapplied the term monosemy pretty horrendously there and clearly need to go back and re-read some things to ensure I use the terms correctly. Thanks for flagging that, it would seem like the concept of "use it or lose it" has applied to me here - opportunity to learn again ...

Re: No Greek words beginning with σλ-?

Thank you, Barry. Would you say it's a plausible conjecture, then, that that explains why the LXX translators slipped an extra vowel into Σαλωμὼν? It's as good an explanation as any. Borrowing usually end up being pronounced with the phonology of the borrowing language, and that sometimes involves ...

Re: Complete Josephus

Does anybody know if this module and the Duke Papyri set mentioned recently work with the free version of Logos? My budget doesn't permit me to get the full version. I decided not to get the free version earlier when I found that the only original language Bible texts it supports are interlinears. ...

Re: No Greek words beginning with σλ-?

In general, Greek has lost the initial *s- of its Proto-Indo-European (PIE) ancestor before the resonants *l, *m, and *n. This is probably connected to Greek's general loss of *s in other places, e.g., between vowels. As far as I'm aware, no word beginning with σλ-, σμ-, and σν- has a secure PIE et...

Re: ζωγρῶν in Luke 5:10

I just noticed something in Luke, and since I am sure that I am not the first to have noticed it , I would be interested in any comment someone might care to make . In my opinion, in Luke 5:10, zogron is a pun, meaning both taking and reviving, the phrase thus meaning either, You will take people a...
