I'm Solomon. I work on a translation project that serves a dear group of people in Kenya. I grew up here in the dairyland state, studied linguistics and Greek at Moody, and a few miscellaneous and small grad studies in linguistics at other schools (as a part of SIL's certificate program). I consider myself a beginning exegete, rather than a (beginning) linguist. Though I have more training in linguistics, I have more experience in exegesis, and am more comfortable there. And my course in Semantics planted seeds I don't think I'll ever be able to get rid of. (my poor friends!)
Part of my current assignment is to nurture my competency in Koine Greek, particularly my communicative/conversational competency.
I've found Dr. Buth's materials helpful, and am grateful to be a part of this forum.
