Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

Do you think that cognitive approaches will make the aspect debates we used to have obsolete? It feels like a lot of people I respect just aren't talking about these things that way anymore. I don't think cognitive approaches are necessary to that, and I'm not even what specific contribution the co...

Re: Similar work to Andrason and Locatell - Perfect Wave

Contra Porter, Andrason et al. do not look for a single meaning that characterises the perfect, but argue that it can take one of various senses along a grammaticalisation cline. Broadly speaking and without delving into the specific details, I would endorse such an approach. The hard part is, and w...

Re: Contract Verbs

Most recently is Willi's new book (2018): The Origin of the Greek Verb: https://amzn.to/2HAmMx9 I have just read this book. It is super-technical, especially on the PIE and pre-PIE side. Fascinating, with original, provocative proposals, and possibly more right than wrong. I'll have to see what the...

Re: Needed - An Open, Trustworthy, Trusted Greek Text

Perseus has an open text, based on Westcott-Hort, but I don't see any consideration of it in the OP. Is this worthwhile to the open source folks?

Re: ETC: Where Orthography Affects the New Testament Text

This is really cool. And another great example of useful open data for biblical studies. Supported by an EU grant. Have people here been using the Amsterdam Database of New Testament Conjectural Emendation ? What is it most useful for? Yes. Most useful for historical insights on the exegetical diff...

Is this a linguistic issue or just a hermeneutical one?
The latter. Concessive interpretations come about when the information is counter to expectation. For example, rich people are not expected to become poor, but ...

Re: What is the difference between ἐδύνατο and ἠδύνατο?

In my view, δύναμαι ~ ἠδύνατο is an analogical remodeling based on θέλω ~ ἤθελον, except that the quantitative augment is actually etymologically correct for the latter.

Re: Photius' Library, 17th cent. Type Script

After spending a lot of the past year on looking at medieval manuscripts, the light bulb moment for me was think more about the inputs--how the pen moves across the parchment--instead of the output, as in the final shape of the letters.
