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

Campbell in forcing an imperfective aspect on the perfect tense, translated this to "I am fighting the good fight, I am finishing the race, I am keeping the faith", but I don't think that's correct. Paul was saying he had done those tasks (in the sense of accomplishment), not that he's still doing ...

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 ...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Here is an example where the verb is fronted in it's clause: εἰσὶν δὲ ἐξειλεγμένοι Περσῶν οἱ ἄριστοι δόξαντες ἐν ἡλικίᾳ τέτταρες... This is close to what we're looking for, but I'm not sure how the δὲ and participle would affect things. Here's an example using the demonstrative: ἔπειτά εἰσιν οὗτοι ...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

The so-called "sentence accent" can also be for a Topicalization, Contextualization and thus non-Focal. So I find "sentence accent" unhelpful by itself. (See my comments immediately above.) Clitics are phonological and prosodic phenomenon, if you're going to account for them without talking about p...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Hyperbaton? Is this how you'd label what's going on in the attached image? (Not meaning to distract here... please be forgiving.) If not, do you know of a name for fronting the PN in such a way? οὗτοί εἰσιν υἱοὶ θεοῦ οὗτοι υἱοί εἰσιν θεοῦ εἴσιν οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ εἰσίν Any pointers as ...
