θριξ > τριχοσ and θριψ > θριποσ

Is there any reason why θ becomes τ in the oblique cases of θριξ, whilst in θριψ nothing changes?

Regards

Re: Is this a legitimate translation of Hebrews 1:8?

Probably You are right: The way Kühner-Gerth state this, it would mean: This Greek Nominative-Clause ist translated with a Vocative (at least in German and Dutch, maybe in all German languages), because the "Germanic linguistic instinct" requires a vocative. They don't say, the Greek claus...

Re: Is this a legitimate translation of Hebrews 1:8?

Dear Bill, According to Kühner-Gerth, Ausführliche Grammatik der Griechischen Sprache Part II, Vol.I, 1897, p. 46, Shirley seems to be right: In Salutations with the Article + Nominative with an attributive Apposition this Nominative is - according to German (and Dutch) habit - translated with a Voc...

Re: Genitive Absolute without Subject

Thanks again, mr. Bartholomew,

with these examples I can show, that the Gothic omission of the Subject could be pointing to a Vorlage with the omission of the Subject of the Gen.Abs. (by the way: the Gothic has a Dative Absolute).

Re: Genitive Absolute without Subject

Thanks mr. Bartholomew,

The Gothic Translator followed the Greek text exactly the same way in 2:42 with explicite Subj. and 2:43: Omitting the Subject!

That's great!

Re: Genitive Absolute without Subject

Thanks for the (as always) quick answer. The problem with comparing an end 4th century translation is, that Luke's style and habits don't matter that much, what matters is the text of the Greek „Vorlage“, that might have omitted the Subject, so causing the Gothic translator to do the same: improbabl...

Genitive Absolute without Subject

The Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek 2019, § 52:32 Note 1, mentions the possibility, that in a Genitive Absolute the Subject can be omitted, if it can easily be supplied from the context. Lk 7:41 δυο χρεωφειλεται ησαν δανειστη τινι ο εισ ωφειλεν δηναρια πεντακοσια ο δε ετεροσ πεντηκοντα (7:42) μ...
