Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek

I wrote up some first impressions of the now published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek.

I like it.

Re: 2 Maccabees 3:11 Gottingen text

οὐχ ὡς is the Logos edition, too.

I'm not well versed in parsing the Gottingen apparatus, but here's what it says:
pr. και L′−62 46-52 58 311 LaXBM Sy | ὡς διαβάλλων ἦν] ουτως διαβαλλων A; ωσπερ ην διαβαλων L′ (-βολων 19; -βαλλων 542)
Seems legit.

Re: 1Peter 3,20 force of the prepositional phrase

Correct me if I'm wrong, but boats travel δι᾽ ὕδατος, do they not?

And was not Noah, well, rescued via boat?

Re: Corpus Linguistics and the Greek of the New Testament

I have a copy sitting in a box in a closet somewhere. It's sort of an odd book--a mix of good ideas and bad ones. But you'd need a lot of background reading in order determine which is which.

παρακαλοῦντες doesn't need anything supplied at all. Its a reciprocal middle.
Middle? Looks active to me.
Sigh. Yes. Yes it is. Post-travel brain fog?

Re: Tenses

I haven't read Rijksbaron, but I guess from the tables you posted that he laid out the usual explanation of the tenses ie. temporals in the indicative, state after a perfect, etc. Here's the thing about stativity after an action though, and one of the writers in Greek Verb Revisited mentioned this ...

Re: Tenses

I've discovered that Rijksbaron is one of the editors of the very recently published Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek . It's advertised as shedding light from modern linguistics on all aspects of classical Greek grammar ... I recommend reading some of it first before laying out the cash. My exp...

Re: Ephesians 5:32 — λέγω εἰς and καὶ εἰς

We have a similar construction in English: "I can speak to this issue," though it has a very narrow distribution. Josephus, Antiquities 5.209 has: καὶ οὕτως μὲν ἡ νίκη αὕτη περιέστη κατὰ τὰ ὑπὸ Δαβώρας εἰρημένα εἰς γυναῖκα And thus this victory stands according to what was spoken by Deborah about a ...
