I don't think any solution that requires users to tag or do something is going to be viable.

Re: Having problems viewing fonts? (Call for Guinea Pigs!)

I prefer a sans-serif font first. The Gentium just gets far too small and difficult to read.

ETA: Plus I'm getting a weird combination of Gentium in some places and Palatino Linotype in others.

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

I agree that this may well simply be an example of a language user not following the “rules,” but let me suggest an alternative analysis. The verb θέλω is often followed by an infinitive construction. When we see the accusative με, it’s natural to think that the writer intended to use such a constr...

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

Might this be understood as a double accusative with με as the object complement of θέλετε and Τί … ποιήσω ὑμῖν as a clause functioning as the accusative complement? I'm not too familiar with a double accusative construction with θέλω. How would it work? One guess is: "Do you want me [to be] what I...

I could see such an emphasis if the text had ἐγώ instead of με. But I can't see your point with με. Attested examples of the construction you have in mind would be very helpful.

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

Thanks for your comments, indicating that the με makes little, if any, syntactic sense here. I would argue that it makes little, if any, prosodic sense here too. I've carefully reading David Goldstein's 2010 Berkeley dissertation on the placement of clausal clitics in 5th cen Greek and comparing the...

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

I'm having trouble understanding the bracketed text of Mark 10:36b: Τί θέλετέ [με] ποιήσω ὑμῖν; Usually, it's translated as "What do you me to do for you?" but this could simply be translational inertia, reflecting either the grammatically smooth Textus Receptus Τί θέλετε ποιῆσαί με ὑμῖν; or the som...

Re: Rom. 4:1 "What then will we say?"

Rom. 4:1 Τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν εὑρηκέναι Ἀβραὰμ τὸν προπάτορα ἡμῶν κατὰ σάρκα; (SBL) My question is whether or not the rendering of Wright and Hays stretches the infinitive to far? Can the perfect active infinitive of εὑρίσκω be unpacked to ask the question, "have we found"? Is there any precedent for thi...
