Re: Is the article genitve article anaphoric at 2 Peter 1:11?

I’m asking for a friend who posed this question to me: Does the article του that is construed with κυριου at 2Peter 1:11 act anaphorically pointing back to του κυριου in verse 8? 2 Peter 1:8-11 8 ταῦτα γὰρ ὑμῖν ὑπάρχοντα καὶ πλεονάζοντα οὐκ ἀργοὺς οὐδὲ ἀκάρπους καθίστησιν εἰς τὴν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰη...

Re: The imperfect of Romans 9:3

I'm not sure what the question is. It is an unrealized wish and Greek uses the imperfect for that. English has a different idiom. As for a possible use of the subjunctive, we're not dealing with a dependent clause, where most subjunctives are found, but an independent clause marked with the connect...

Re: On the syntactical description John 5:7,8

What Barry said.

To add: the participle needs to agree with τρεῖς...which is non-neuter (i.e. the masculine & feminine forms are identical). If anything here is interesting with regard to gender is the shift here: οἱ τρεῖς εἰς τὸ ἕν εἰσιν, but even then. It's just "interesting", not ungrammatical.

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

A number of the essays in the Greek verb Revisited fall into this domain.

Re: Contract Verbs

Most recently is Willi's new book (2018): The Origin of the Greek Verb: https://amzn.to/2HAmMx9 I have just read this book. It is super-technical, especially on the PIE and pre-PIE side. Fascinating, with original, provocative proposals, and possibly more right than wrong. I'll have to see what the...

Re: Database of Categorisation of verbs according to (for example) Wallace?

Logos' Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament does that.

But generally, if you wanted a database of verb usage, you'd want a system that's, well, actually rigorous in its definitions and categories.

Re: What is the difference between ἐδύνατο and ἠδύνατο?

As an English analogy:

Some people spell 'gray' and other people spell 'grey'. Both are correct. The difference used to be dialectal, but with the growth of cross-dialectal interaction, but get used by the same people from time to time.

This was already old news when I encountered it in the late 1980s.
It isn't so much that the ideas are new. You could probably trace them into the 1970s or maybe even earlier. It's just that semantics for biblical languages didn't really start talking about then until this century.

Re: What areas need updating in Silva?

That sounds like my chapter in Linguistics & Biblical Exegsis, which I excerpted here:

Silva himself, I'm told, considers his own book on semantics in great need of an updating.
