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...

Working Papers in Greek Language & Linguistics

I've been in communication with a handful of grammarians/linguists over the past year or two about the possibility of developing a sort of Working Papers project for students and perhaps also professors to have an opportunity to get broader feedback and comment on papers related to Greek grammar. Wo...

Mike Aubrey

I'm a linguist with a primary focus on Hellenistic Greek. I did my B.A. in Greek and Historical Theology/Church History at Moody Bible Institute. I began graduate studies at the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics. I'm currently writing my thesis on the semantics of the Greek verb at the Canad...

Re: Archaisms & the Hellenistic Perfect

Well, I'm less interested in the dative of agent constructions themselves anyway, and you've already confirmed (I think) my suspicions that truly stative perfects like what we see with γέγραπται constitute a more formal level of speech--or at least it was becoming that way. This is something I might...

Re: Archaisms & the Hellenistic Perfect

Mike, this is very interesting, and I'm glad we have these categories and subcategories in Jonathan's proposed forum structure. Agreed. It's wonderful. γέγραπται is distinctly Hebraic/LXX Greek, isn't it? A quick check of all the GNT instances of γέγρατπται doesn't bring up any used with a so-calle...
