Re: Patrologiae Graeca Logos software

It isn't released yet. Nobody has it.

Currently, Logos has the first 18 volumes actually in production and included in their base packages, but even those 18 haven't shipped yet.

Re: The pronunciation of the Classical Greek stops β δ γ in Koine Greek AFTER NASALS

I don't think its fraught in any sense of technical difficulty. For the most part, I think the phonology of the period is extremely well established, though of course, there is so much that can and needs to be done a dialectology for not only Palestine, but also Asia Minor. I think the real challeng...

Re: The pronunciation of the Classical Greek stops β δ γ in Koine Greek AFTER NASALS

Well, I like the Trajan data. That's lovely.

As for the practical question, I don't know. In theory yes, but the topic is so fraught that it generally feels like a lost cause to even try.

Randall has been working at it for decades and there hasn't been much change.

Re: Can a genitive be both objective and subjective?

I was just reviewing the genitive on this site: https://www.ntgreek.org/pdf/genitive_case.pdf It appears they suggest that there exists a "plenary genitive" that is both. Is this chart controversial/wrong or am I missing some naunce? It's uncontroversially wrong. :D Wallace, who came up with the "p...

Re: ἔξω an adverb (more or less)

One thing here that's important is the question of whether ἔξω is functioning as a preposition in a given context. When word is in transition to preposition, it's going to have usage in both part-of-speech domains. Cf. English than , which is currently working on this transition in English from a co...

Re: Policy: Let the moderators do the moderating

B-Greek has always been low volume, and there has always been someone saying that it was dying, that it was too restrictive, etc. There are also more alternatives these days, including various Facebook groups. I think there are still things that work better in this kind of forum, and we continue to...

Thanks for both suggestions Mike. I will get onto them (based on the price I will be getting the kindle version only on the first link!!!!)
Used is $14! Always buy used for hardcovers. You then have a chance of getting a first printing that's sewn rather than glued.

Re: Works on the infinitive

Burke's book isn't great. There isn't a lot out there though on Greek specifically. I would, however, highly recommend Nikolaeva's edited volume: Finiteness: Theoretical and Empirical Foundations https://amzn.to/2M6XyWe And Sonia Cristofaro has some essays/articles on infinitive complementation (as ...

Re: Verb inside prep phrase: Acts 1:5

is this normal syntax in Koine? Yes. is this Luke showing off his education? :-) Yes. If this is not normal usage, then what is being highlighted by the author? I take these sort of structures as syntactic evidence of the Greek's prosodic structure. There's literature on this, but there is no satis...
