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...

4 τοὺς μετʼ ἐσοῦ πάντας. περὶ οὗ μοι παλλάκεις Looks like this text was retyped by an American. I'm not at all sure what you mean. The text is as the manuscript has it.

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...

Weekend Papyrus 6-11-2021

P.Oxy 3.531, a letter from a father to his son. Structurally the letter reminds me more of 2 and 3 John than anything else, but see what you think. 1 Κορνήλιος Ἱέρακι τῷ γλυκυτάτωι υἱῷ 2 χαίρειν. 3 ἡδέως σε ἀσπαζόμεθα πάντες οἱ ἐν οἴκωι καὶ 4 τοὺς μετʼ ἐσοῦ πάντας. περὶ οὗ μοι παλλάκεις 5 γράφεις ἀν...

Re: Teaching the Genitive

I'd like to ask the pedagogues, teachers, and self-learners on the forum how you teach what the genitive means. Do you give a basic meaning of possession or intrinsic relationship and hope the student infers the full usage in their reading, or do you go the full Wallace and give the students a list...

Jonathan, I was just about to post these same sections from Smyth, but wanted to look at the Cambridge as well.

Re: Gender concordance with the article

Quick (hopefully question). I am spending time with someone who has their Phd in classics, primarily working through Lucian’s works. During the course of one of our side discussions I was asking about the use of the article / variants of πας where there are multiple referents with different genders...
