The Weekend Papyrus 6-18-2021

Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

Hi Barry, That's what I was considering after I came up short for a missing noun, and for πρωί that seemed quite ok to me. But ἐσπέρα is an noun rather than an adverb. So I was wondering if that was still valid or if perhaps one needed to assume an omitted infinitive ? Thx D But notice that it's ἑσ...

Re: Ps 29 (30) v6

τὸ ἑσπέρας αὐλισθήσεται κλαυθμός, καὶ εἰς τὸ πρωὶ ἀγαλλίασις. I don't think it's necessary to supply any missing noun. The neuter articles here simply substantialize the adverbs. In this case the first usage would be an accusative of respect "weeping lodges in the evening" and the second ...

Re: Weekend Papyrus 6-11-2021

I'm not at all sure what you mean. The text is as the manuscript has it. I will call attention to ἐσοῦ, which seems to be by analogy with ἐμοῦ. Normally with σύ the difference is simply with the accent. I don't think I've seen this elsewhere. A bit surprising considering the writer's Greek is other...

I think Stephen may have been referring to the errant α in παλλάκεις where DDbDP has πολλάκεις.

Regarding ἐσοῦ I found a very brief reference in LSJ



Thx
D
Okay, and thanks for the LSJ -- I missed that when I looked at the entry.

Re: Teaching the Genitive

English “of” does have a huge overlap with the genitive, and I suspect that many of Wallace’s categories merely document when the “of” gloss doesn’t work. I wonder how much the taxonomy is affected by English glosses generally. Wallace also mixes in syntactic behavior in his categories (e.g., the p...

Re: A Latin Definition of ‘Deponent’ (Donatus)

I came across the following definition of deponent verbs by Donatus, Ars Minor (4th cen. CE): Deponentia quae sunt? Quae in ‘r’ desinunt, ut passiva, sed ea dempta Latina non sunt, ut ‘luctor,’ ‘loquor’. What are the deponents? Those which end in ‘r’, like the passives, but when removed are not Lat...
