A.T. Robertson-baptizo, rantizo, etc + Holy Ghost baptism

I would like to have any information about his view on use of the words related to the baptism, particularly from the Koine accessment.

Also his greek interpretation of the Holy Ghost baptism would be appreciated.

Unfortunatelly as I don't have neither his "Short or Big Grammar", I would be relying on the information you post to me.

The doubt came about on reading that his family used to attend a presbiterian church, he was ...

Spectator

This week's Spectator magazine has a very interesting article by James Morwood on the study of classics in general (in the UK) which finishes by introducing a new competition. This looks like being great fun for anyone who enjoys English to Greek/Latin translation - especially of the less usual material, co-incidently like the stuff I've put up for translation here once ot twice.

For those who can't get hold of the paper copy clicking http://www.spectator.co.uk ...

Liddell&Scott Big Lexicon on CDROM

Has anybody tried using the Liddell&Scott Greek-English Lexicon on CDROM that is offered through Logos Bible Software? Looks to me like it might be prefeable to buying the regular book edition. Any comments would, of course, be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Hal

Conjugation of thaptw

Thaptw: aorist passive etafhn (epsilon, tau, alpha, phi, eta, nu)

What's the explanation for this? The aspiration seems to have changed place.

Just guessing, I would say that the tau has dissimilated because of the phi. But why the phi? Perhaps it was expecting (or making the analogy with?) another theta aorist passive (luw etc), hence the aspiration?

Sorry if that sounds confused. I hope you get the general idea.

Greek accents

Hi Will,

If you have seen the newly published (2003) "A New Short Guide to the Accentuation of Ancient Greek" by Philomen Probert (Bristol Classical Press), I'd like to hear how useful you'd find it for someone who is just nearing the end of Hansen & Quin.

I discovered it by reading a recent Bryn Mawr Classical review of the book and am considering whether I'd benefit from using it.

Thanks.

Smyth Auction

FYI..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

Smyth's Greek Grammar comes up for auction only about 5 times a year. I bet it'll sell somewhere in the mid 30s price range. Worth it if the book is in good condition. You'll pay much more through Alibris or Abebooks. You can of course purchase this new as a reprint from Amazon as well. I think it sells for $42.

It's dated 1916, but ...

`arpadso

:lol:

I am to begin the Ancient Greek episode in the near future; I want a good primer, admittedly as similar to that of D'Ooge as possible, without obviously the hic haec hoc. I want a harsh old book, but one with exercises and lively content rather than JWW.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0715612581/qid%3D1081094080/sr%3D1-3/ref%3Dsr%5F1%5F2%5F3/026-5841586-0180401

Does any one know this book? If it is bad, do you have any recommendations?

Thank you, ...
