Re: Interpreting "ὑπερεντυγχάνει" and "ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ" in Romans 8?

There could be word play here. Beyond appreciating it as a reader, rendering it into the English is more of an issue for the translator and translation technique / philosophy. That said, translating ὑπερεντυγχάνει as "intercedes" and as ἐντυγχάνει ὑπέρ "falls in between" doesn't really exploit the w...

Re: Interpreting "ὑπερεντυγχάνει" and "ἐντυγχάνει ὑπὲρ" in Romans 8?

Go with what the lexicons say. They document what the words mean in usage and that's what you need to be faithful to. Compound words, especially those used with any frequency, take on a life of their after coinage, and so there is no benefit to preserving the feel of a compound word that has moved o...

Re: Introduction and question about databases.

There are (or used to be) some general purpose citation databases for the humanities, but I haven't looked at them in over twenty years and can't remember their name. ATLA doesn't have this feature as far as I aware. And, unlike the sciences, scholars in the humanities are not evaluated on their cit...

Re: Imperatives and encouragement

Is there a good cognitive-linguistic paper on Greek imperatives? Any pointers from the linguists? @MAubrey? @Stephen Carlson? @serunge? (This ping feature didn't send me a notification.) I'm not aware of any. I just know that the simple first-year Greek explanation that imperatives are commands is ...

Re: Understanding the usage of +/- in linguistic papers?

Yes, Stephen, we've had something of this conversation before, and you keep bringing up these examples. I'm not talking about "frozen forms" consistently treated as presents, or even idiomatic/pragmatic usages, but about verbs which have the full or near full complement of morphological identity. ο...

Re: Understanding the usage of +/- in linguistic papers?

And I don't ever think I've seen a Greek perfect rendered in Latin as a present tense, or an aorist either, including Mark 1:11 where the verb is rendered conplacui. The present tense scio often translates the perfect οιδα (I haven’t checked them all, but see Rev 2:2), and similis est (also present...

Re: Preposed Verb-initial Units

It’s been a while since I’ve read Recht, and his dissertation convinced me that post-verbal focus was a thing in Greek. By “non-syntactic” he means that the PVU need not be a (full) syntactic constituent. It may not seem like a big deal to those used to Greek hyperbaton and other forms of “discontig...
