The verb οἴχομαι should probably be replaced with a different verb, this one isn't in BDAG. Any other issues?
It's a good Koine verb, so keep it.** For Greek Morphology we used an LXX example:Ἰακωβ δὲ ἔδωκεν τῷ Ησαυ ἄρτον καὶ ἕψεμα φακοῦ, καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ ἔπιεν καὶ ἀναστὰς ᾤχετο. Naturally, it has no aorist stem and was alphabetized under the continuative stem.

OK, it's fairly common in the LXX, almost three dozen times, almost always in the imperfect (e.g., Gen 25:34 quoted above) but once in the future, Hos 10:14 τὰ περιτετειχχισμένα σου οἰχήσεται.RandallButh wrote:It's a good Koine verb, so keep it.** For Greek Morphology we used an LXX example:Ἰακωβ δὲ ἔδωκεν τῷ Ησαυ ἄρτον καὶ ἕψεμα φακοῦ, καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ ἔπιεν καὶ ἀναστὰς ᾤχετο.Jonathan Robie wrote:The verb οἴχομαι should probably be replaced with a different verb, this one isn't in BDAG.

If Rijksbaron's goal is to exemplify a verb that lacks an aorist stem, what's wrong with εἶναι (εἰμί)?? That would be a better and more common example, wouldn't it?RandallButh wrote:For defective Koine consider adding verbs like εἰδέναι 'to know', (though related to ἰδεῖν), or κεῖσθαι 'to lie' (though sometimes used in a passive relationship to τιθέναι)
Yes, we have no authority to rewrite Rijksbaron, but we can comment/discuss.RandallButh wrote:As mentioned, the notes for for clarification not for rewriting Rijksbaron.
Yeah, the difference in attitude is amazing to me. Some linguists have no compunction about looking to, say, Hungarian for insight into how Greek works, while some NT exegesis refuse to consider a usage in Euripides, say, as evidence.RandallButh wrote:** PS: the Koine and Classical periods of the Greek language were an integrated whole and the language cannot be cleanly separated into two. One can only point out forms or features that were added or that dropped out of the whole language. A note about the organic connectedness of the two dialects is probably necessary because so many students approach the GNT as if it were a separate language from "classical Greek". I have even heard this used as a 'fig leaf' to cover an inability to read outside the NT. The Greeks were aware of changes taking place, but they did not consider these changes a different language, and the second Sophistic elitists re-asserted the Attic forms for 'proper form'.
