Why does it have τι with the acute accent and seemingly the accusative interrogative pronoun?
Why does it have τινος with no accentuation at all since in the genitive it would have it either on the penult or the ultima depending on whether it is an interrogative or an indefinite pronoun?

Scott Lawson wrote:Not looking to far down in the entries below καταμαρτυρέω in BDAG, I see κατανεύω, which means signal (usually by means of a nod) to someone.
Here τινί is presumably masc./fem. dative and no other form of the pronoun appears. Does that indicate that κατανεύω is transitive and only has its complement in the dative?
Again, not much farther down is καταξιόω. Same questions about τινά; is it its complement only to be found in the accusative?
