  • 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...

Re: Matt. 21:17 Questioning Passive Deponency of αυλιζομαι

Hi Barry. Thanks for the Brill Dictionary quote. A couple of things... 1) "force" is a red herring. Pardon by bad choice of words. My assertion is just that the passive is functioning as a passive (however you want to translate it). Maybe "he was made/caused to spend the night" ...

Re: Participle in Matt. 27:55

Sorry on the metalanguage puke. Perhaps the occupational hazard of writing a dissertation which touches in many ways on passages like this. Should have cleaned it up after I wrote it. I'm currently swimming in 4 or 5 other peoples' metalanguage and trying to carve out my own in the process. On top ...
