Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

ὁ ἄνθρωπος περιεπάτει ἐγὼ εἶδον ὅτι ὁ ἄνθρωπος περιεπάτει ἐγὼ εἶδον τὸν ἄνθρωπον περιπατοῦντα In the third line the adjective περιπατοῦντα is part of an embedded object phrase/clause and "in the predicate position," but it is not at adverb to εἶδον or adverbial. I find "adverbial participle" to be ...

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

Infinitives and even futures are gone in ModernGr. I'm not sure "trouble" would be related to analyzing "adjective" vs "adverbial" participles. Participles had clear adjectival morphology. The reason appears to be related to what could have been seen as excessive subordination/embedding within a mai...

Re: Are adverbial participles only nominative?

Participles are adjectives, ἐπίθετα if you will. Build from there.

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

Hopefully the line: "One father writes to his OIEIWI, 100 CE." was clear to most old-timers on this list. To clarify just in case, the father wrote in good first-century phonetic spelling to his son, to his υἱῷ, plus a silent historical dative marker (-I). The whole short papyrus is worth reading in...

Re: Recommend papyri for teaching?

Check out Select Papyri, v. 1 LOEB.
You will need to do some library work with Oxyrrhyncus Papyri for pictures, then search data banks online. Some amusing situations are in that papyri volume. One father writes to his OIEIWI, 100 CE. That should get your students attention.

Re: Complete paradigms for all GNT verbs?

You will find that Mounce and most "NT" books do not cover all the verbs. They will hang you out to dry. Instead, they list and re-group all of the forms that are attested in the NT, but they leave blank the many many unattested and irregular forms. For someone who wants to internalize the language ...

Re: ἐφοβήθησαν φόβον μέγαν

Even if it is original with the LXX, once a Greek speaker uses it in a non-translation text, it becomes Greek. Loan constructions happen just like loan words do. Michael, that becomes emet and true if it is picked up by other authors and it actually enters the language or a dialect of the language ...
