Re: Does pronunciation matter? If so, why?

what purpose one has for learning Greek to begin with "To begin with" is in most cases, I suppose, followed by a 'to continue someway". One would start, as a primary interest, with the NT, or Homer, or Plato, etc.; however, I suspect that every such person would later develop the interest to go bey...

Μή τι, Mike, ἐὰν λαλήσω ἔτι ἅπαξ· I thought that με was possibly redundant, from the perspective of those who may consider the form Τί θέλετε ποιήσω ὑμῖν correct as well.

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

Re: Mark 10:36 Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν;

How about με just emphasizing something? Not necessarily 'me' as opposed to 'anyone other than me', but other, more subtle things?
