Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

If I may, I would suggest that you read the following books (or, at least, the first two) before you continue on your project: Linguistic Categorization Basic Color Terms: Their Universality and Evolution The World Color Survey Color Ordered: A Survey of Color Systems from Antiquity to the Present

Re: Book Review: Myths and Mistakes in NT Textual Criticism

Peter is a good friend and excellent scholar. I haven't seen the book yet, but I'm not surprised its being received positively.

Re: Siebenthal - Ancient Greek Grammar

I have a copy in the mail. I've looked at the German edition a few times, but I've never had the capacity for evaluating the German version in depth. Hopefully, I'll have time to dig into it this winter.

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

I'm not entirely sure why you find /εβntε/ to not be pronounceable. The voice bilabial fricative isn't obstructing the shift to the aveolar nasal. They're whole separate places of articulation. Say the fricative normally and then simply close off the air flow through your lips by putting your tongue...

Re: Articular Infinitive

They can be separated by several words.

Infinitives function as the head of a clause and it's the entire infinitival clause that's articular, not just the infinitive verb alone.

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

Bringing this back to the theme of my OP - having surveyed more of the literature on this topic and having analyzed several Greek examples (below) - it seems as though the majority of non-past aorists in the bible are traditionally translated into English with either present perfect or simple prese...

Here are a few more examples in the NT: Matthew 10:4 Σίμων ὁ Καναναῖος καὶ Ἰούδας ὁ Ἰσκαριώτης ὁ καὶ παραδοὺς αὐτόν .

Re: ὁ καὶ ...

This is the first time I have come across και occurring in this position. ὁ καὶ δηλώσας ἡμῖν τὴν ὑμῶν ἀγάπην ἐν πνεύματι. (Colossians 1:8) The sentence seems perfectly readable, however I am curious about the grammar. Is καὶ still simply acting as a coordinating conjunction? It is, for the lack of ...

Re: Aorist indicative with future temporal reference

The introduction of terminology and concepts that are not formerly part of the discussion. Interaction with authors who seem to be inventing as they go along cherry picking bits and pieces from multiple authors who are not even using the same basic framework. So it all looks like a collage pasted t...
