Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

Geeraerts is good. What I've found helpful linguistically are: grammaticalization theory (Joan Bybee et al.), polysemy (cognitive linguistics),and information structure. What I don't recommend: anything generative or Chomskyan (they're just asking different questions about language than what's helpf...

Re: The negation of perfect verb forms

The perfect refers simply to completed action, ... You're describing the aorist. There's no completed action for οἶδα. Ah, yes, οἶδα. Do you think that the idiomatic use of this verb can be generalized to all perfects? Latin, BTW, does the same thing with the perfect of nosco, novi. Does that mean ...

Re: ISBL 2018, Helsinki

When I did not have a fever, I attended text-critical sessions. There was a great presentation about printed portions of the New Testament before Erasmus, mostly the Lord's Prayer and the Lukan canticles, but also a serialization of the first six chapters of John.

Re: Please recommend a Reader's GNT

I would love to know if anyone has documented, or knows where it is documented, what sort of textual decisions have been made in this version that are against the UBS.

LSJ is online at logeion, TLG, and Archimedes. I'll have to check my printed LSJM at home to see if it's in there; I hardly use it anymore.

None of the thousands of textσ with millions of words online at TLG has μετοξύ. It does not appear to be a form recognized by editors.

Re: Legitimate word forms?

LSJ actually has an entry for μετοξύ. Here it is:
μετοξύ,
A v. μεταξύ.
Make of it what you will.

Re: Legitimate word forms?

I doubt your doubts, because multiple scribes wrote them and did not correct their “mistakes”, and in most cases, neither did any of the many subsequent hands which also did not bother to “correct” them. I'm concerned that this may be reading too much into scribes and later hands not correcting "mi...
