Re: Restored Koine in nontechnical terms

u-psilon as "ulcer"? In English I pronounce this with a centralized shva-sound "duh". In Koine and standard Erasmian it is the German or French "umlaut"-u sound, so there shouldn't be any difference here between Erasmian and Koine, but "ulcer" should not be chosen as an example word for either. It ...

Re: Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek Authentically

Actually gamma was palatalized before front vowels by the first century. I confess that that γ was the only sound I didn't check my copy Gignac for. You are correct of course.

Re: Teaching Aspect and Aktionsart

Are you teaching in German or in English? One of the problems is that historically, aktionsart simply meant aspect. The two terms are virtually interchangeable in the old grammars. And to that extent, its less helpful to use them both in the classroom. In terms of the modern distinction, the easiest...

I'd prefer Gentium first too.

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

Vasile Stancu wrote:I thought that με was possibly redundant, from the perspective of those who may consider the form Τί θέλετε ποιήσω ὑμῖν correct as well.
Hmm. I see what you're saying. I don't have an answer for that though...

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

Mike, I believe emphasizing things is not limited to employing accent/accented words. Don't you agree that a redundant με could be assumed as an emphasizing instrument? No. Emphasis via redundancy would appear along with an accented form. In fact when we talk about pronouns, we usually talk about t...

Re: Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek Authentically

Even so, it appears that you missed a vital point I make at the very end of the main excerpt, which reads: “In the light of evidence, no pronunciation method can get closer to the pronunciation of New Testament and classical Greek than the pronunciation of Neohellenic, the Greek of today.” That is ...

Re: Reading and Pronouncing Biblical Greek Authentically

How should I read and pronounce New Testament Greek? Which pronunciation method taught in Bible colleges and seminaries is the right one? And why are there different ways of pronouncing Greek? Isn’t today’s Greek pronunciation compatible with New Testament Greek? New Testament Greek textbooks and g...

Re: Two Books on Verbal Aspect

Dear Mike, It sounds, though, like you're currently lopsided toward one side of the debate. I would encourage your to read the other side as well. That is true on the one hand. I try to understand one side completely, that's why I've read these authors first. Right now I'm reading Rijksbaron's "Syn...
