Re: Best textbooks (Beginning, Intermediate)

Most beginning grammarians invariably originate from the author's own classroom experience teaching Greek. Whether that experience has anything to do with the author's own capacity in the language is an entirely other question. For me, the first question I ask when I'm looking at introductory gramma...

Re: Favorite Greek-related Blogs?

I'd also add Nick Nicholas' blog: Ἡλληνιστεύκοντος: An occasional blog on Greek linguistics (broadly meant) "Making Greek more googleable (through English)" http://hellenisteukontos.blogspot.com/ Nick works with on TLG and wrote his dissertation on που, if I remember correctly. You'll find him discu...

ΕΝ ΕΦΕΣΩ Studies in Greek Language & Linguistics… - Michael Aubrey (http://evepheso.wordpress.com/) Little or nothing about Ephesians (just as well, from my perspective) I know...I know. I'm basically stuck with the name. I have 350 subscribers. If I switched to a new blog with a new name, I'd prob...

Re: The Aspect of Historical Present 'Against the Grain'

You can't 'reject' it. They are parameters, fields. That fact that pieces of language interact in both dimensions doesn't drop their usefulness or validity. Like tense-aspect-mood. One doesn't drop them just because some languages mix them like the particle-wave nature of light. Randall, you've mad...

Re: The Aspect of Historical Present 'Against the Grain'

Randall's article was: “Mark's use of the historic present,” Notes on Translation 65 (1982): 7-13.

As for my thesis, I'm currently working on literature survey and organizing my corpus. I plan on drafting chapters dealing with the data by July or August (hopefully). My completion goal is spring 2012.

Re: The Aspect of Historical Present 'Against the Grain'

One problem I have with the "aspect-only camp" is that there's no testable theory, and no systematic explanation of how the verb actually works. As I said many years ago , It's not use to say that unless you can identify what these factors are. When I read Porter, I often get the feeling that he is...

Re: Best online Septuagint?

I stand corrected! The last update I had was from January, when Logos was coming up with a strategy for morphing the text. The accuracy is probably better than 99% already, if they took the approach we discussed back then. You know, I think you're right. Rick announced it in the forums, but I could...

Re: Best online Septuagint?

The best text of the LXX is the Göttingen, which is available electronically from Logos (http://www.logos.com/product/4951/gottingen-septuagint) or Accordance (http://www.accordancebible.com/store/details/?pid=LXXG+1+CD-ROM). The Logos version is affordable and complete but not morphologically tagg...

Re: Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

Incredibly? You didn't expect any response at all? I personally think that hosting such "working papers" as you describe would (a) perform a function of immense value not only to serious students of Biblical Greek but to serious Classicists concerned with the whole development of the Greek language...
