προσφάτως πειράζω μανθάνειν...

Would that be better then ?
Why πειράζω and not ζητῶ? It is for a conative? If so, why not the present μανθάνω directly ?

Re: David Yoon on the Perfect Tense - 1 Cor 7:14

Another weigh in on the perfect tense form - this time by David I. Yoon from McMaster, coming down on the side of stative aspect. Just got flagged by my google alerts https://www.bskorea.or.kr/data/pdf/46-14%20The%20Perfect%20Tense-Form%20in%20Application(David%20I.%20Yoon).pdf Of interest it refer...

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

True. I'm just not sure monadicity is a (pardon the pun) defining element here. Also: the earth/world example is lexical, but its relevant because both words together subsume a portion of the same semantic space of κόσμος. I guess I'm not seeing the relevance of your examples to the verses at hand ...

Re: τῶν ἐν [τῷ] κόσμῳ θαυμάτων in Basil-? and Gregory Nyssa

Unless my initial impression is wrong, all of these examples can be explained that κόσμῳ is not marked for definiteness/identifiability in focus.

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

If we can define syntactic searches, I'm happy to do this. I have done an initial integration of Levinsohn's features, and it kind of works but is painfully slow right now. Over the coming weeks and months I should have something that can do syntax + discourse reasonably well. And I will be adding ...

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

May I make the suggestion that it could be a dialectal feature with also some spread across. It’s possible, but I’m not aware of any evidence identifying intra-Koine dialects or dialectal features. Even getting a handle on register is difficult. I’d rather go there only if I had something (indeed q...

Re: Expressing a perfect continuous idea

The best way to express the English present perfective progressive (have been Xing) in Greek is generally with the present.

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

I haven't looked at the contexts in which each of these phrases occur yet, but it seems obvious that the Johannine uses in this list all contain the article. Outside of the Johannine writings, we're left with this: Phil 2:15 φαίνεσθε ὡς φωστῆρες ἐν κόσμῳ Col 2:20b τί ὡς ζῶντες ἐν κόσμῳ δογματίζεσθε...

Re: ἐν (τῷ) κόσμῳ

And how is κόσμῳ in John 1:10 ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἦν not salient? If John always uses the article in this phrase, the question may not be relevant here. I think an idiolectal hypothesis is a hypothesis of last resort. John wrote in Greek and understood by those who spoke Greek, so it’s best to assume that ...
