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.) Mike will have to define "sentence accent" but I've been gravitating to a position like that (it basically si...

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Yes, that's what I'd call it. Clitics create syntactic discontinuities for purposes of phonological phrasing. Enclitics like the unaccented pronouns and forms of εἰμί tend to attach to the clauses sentence accent. +1 εἴσιν οὗτοι υἱοὶ θεοῦ - This is a weird one. I don't imagine this one happening. M...

Re: Introduction The Contribution of the Cordoba-School to the Lexicography of New Testament Greek

These are the folks doing the Diccionario Griego-Español del Nuevo Testamento (DGENT). It is a well-respected but still on-going project. I think they're currently on words beginning with gamma (γ-).

Re: γραφει τους λογους

However, Latin must always be pronounced using classical pronunciation, regardless of what certain forum members may think. You know who you are. I refuse to take the bait every time someone commends the heathen pronunciation of Latin. Augustine used classical pronunciation. Don't ask me how I know...

Re: γραφει τους λογους

Don’t use Google Translate for Koine Greek. It’s not set up for it, and modern Greek is too different.

Re: In 1 Peter 3:22 is the subjugation complete or ongoing?

Can you explain what you're really getting at? Your question appears to be asking whether an aorist is a present or an aorist. http://www.ntgreek.org/answers/time_element_of_aorist_participle.htm From what I understand, which is limited, an aorist doesn't always include a time element (which is why...

Re: In Revelation 11:15 to whom does βασιλεύσει refer?

The normal approach is to resolve this theologically but I'm wondering if it should be explained in Koine terms as ad sensum (as is ἐσάλπισεν): Revelation 11:15 καὶ ὁ ἕβδομος ἄγγελος ἐσάλπισεν καὶ ἐγένοντο φωναὶ μεγάλαι ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ λέγοντες ἐγένετο ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ κόσμου τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν καὶ τοῦ Χρι...

Since you've now looked at it, does he talk about referentiality or...?
