relative seldom repeated

Goodwin & Gulick 1039 say 'A relative is seldom repeated *in a new case* in the same sentence. Either it is omitted and understood in the latter part of the sentence, or a personal or demonstrative pronoun takes its place.' -- but they give only a few examples.

Does anyone know of a fuller treatment?

Many thanks

I believe...

peiqomai takes the dative at times like "I believe in Father Christmas" but does it also when one's trying to say "I believe a new coat is better"?
Accusative, (men?) seems natural but my heart (de?) screams out for a dative. Any thoughts?

On a not unrelated matter in

Caduceus ?

Caduceus - the staff of Hermes: (two serpents wound around a rod touching noses at the top).

Not sure if the C is Chi or Kappa; this was the english transliteration I found and do not have a greek dictionary handy.

Laryngeals etc

Can anybody give me a brief summary/explanation of all this laryangeal/schwa stuff? It's obviosuly a major part of PIE philology but it seems very confusing to me. I understand that they were consonants, but why are they listed (in Sihler) in conjunction with vowels (such as eH1) and what effect do they have on subsequent languages (i.e. reflexes)?

Or is it not possible to summarise this issue? It certainly seems complicated and contraversial.

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
