Re: Question About Accents: Syntactical Implications of εἰμι verses εἰμί

Is this true, false, thought-provoking, nutty, something else? False. Copular verbs always have predicates. Necessarily. The difference in accentuation is motivated on the basis of whether or not εἰμί receives stress on its own or whether it is functioning as an enclitic (i.e. has not stress and at...

Re: Blog on particles in Greek

No replacement for Denniston, but a nice supplement Denniston has tons of examples (which is great) but outdated theory (which isn’t). I recommend the new Cambridge Grammar of Classical Greek for particles. Don't forget Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse ! https://chs.harvard.edu/book/bonifazi-dr...

  • Semantic scope & pre-articular modifiers.
What do you mean by this?
Quantifiers and demonstratives appear outside the scope of the Greek article. It's typologically weird and deserves a full treatment.

Thesis/Dissetation Topics

I made a comment about thesis/dissertation topics on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/michaelgaubrey/status/1397674471062913034 And Jonathan Robie asked if I'd be willing to post a list here to B-Greek. I'll probably cross-post it to Koine-Greek.com, too. Much of this assumes a knowledge of linguis...

Re: John 3:13 and perfect typology

Thanks Mike. I shall park it in my “someday I might understand” category for now. Well, I'm not sure I understand it either, so we can both put it in that category for now! :D Porter, arguing against Pierce in BAGL vol 6, using his tenseless view argues the following, but I can’t quite see it In li...

Re: John 3:13 and perfect typology

This is *the* hard example for everyone. Two possible readings that I have floating around my head, but haven't done any of the grunt work to evaluate are: A hard subject-state reading something like: "Nobody is an ascender to heaven, except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.&qu...

Re: The Weekend Papyrus 5-21-2021

Hi Barry, I am having a little trouble with the sense of χρείαν combined with κατέχω later. Am correct in understanding that he is holding Serenos pending payment of a debt ? My initial reading was more about having a need for him, but that does not seem consonant with κατέχω. But perhaps I am miss...

I, Kyrillos, greet you.
And notice the use of the optative χαίροις instead of the more usual χαῖρε.
Yes. Indeed. That's a fun bit. The style of the letter as a whole creates a bit of formal distance between author & recipient.

Re: προσανέθεντο (Gal 2:6)

Apart from surrounding context in Galatians, is there anything in these Greek phrases alone, as quoted above to indicate that this translation of Gal 2:6 is wrong? Or, is the prevailing interpretation based entirely on an interpretation of surrounding context? It's not completely an issue of the su...
