Re: Greek Keyboards

I'm not a Linux user so it was interesting to see a Linux layout. Unfortunately, I didn't see the psili/daseia (breathing) key. On Mac and PC it is the [ ' " ] key. Perhaps there is an updated Linus keyboard, or I missed something. Also, Shirley's comments on keyboards didn't clarify whether or not ...

Re: Greek Keyboards

Students, readers, and teachers, should all be reminded that both Windows and Mac have Greek and Hebrew keyboards already installed in their operating systems. They only need to be turned on (activated). Naturally, both of them follow the national typewriter keyboard standards, the Greek typewriter ...

Re: Leviticus 23:11 - πρώτης

I wonder if the substitution of ημερης for σαββατου is related to the controversy of the counting of the `omer? Some interpreted shabbat to refer to the 15th of Nisan, others to the normal shabbat of the week in which the 15th of Nisan fell. 'the first' might be a midrashic appositive that refers to...

Re: Print Versions of the Greek NT / OT-LXX

In fact, I prefer little Horev editions of the MT. They are a real Masoretic text without the poetic formatting in BHS that sometimes goes against the MT. They also have proper formatting for synagogue readers. The Horev editions are based on the Aleppo Codex where extant, another plus over BHS. Do...

Re: Print Versions of the Greek NT / OT-LXX

Thirty-five+ years ago I used to bind copies of an MT and GNT together. They worked well and I did two or three versions. But over the years as editions wear out I haven't bothered to bind up more. Ironically, although I used to request that UBS bind BHS and NA/UBS together, when they finally did so...

Re: New Testament Audio Texts

Jeremy ἔγραψεν ... I'm probably not yet ready to take the spoken language plunge, but I'd guess that for those who can do so that it really opens up horizons of understanding and thinking--certain constructions would seem more natural if used conversationally. Best wishes, Jeremy what would it take...

Re: verbal aspect (split from Beginner's Forum)

And whether it is used with the adverb "tomorrow" in my mind is entirely irrelevant (that's actually the case with all the English modal auxiliaries) and future meaning and modality to so tightly connected, I'm entirely sure how useful it is to distinguish them in English (...to commend on Randall'...
