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

Matthew 2:20

I'm a bit confused by the verb (I hate this verb :evil: ) here:

teqnh/kasin ga\r zhtou~ntes th\n yuxh\n tou~ paidi/ou

have the jealous/envious killed the spirit of the child? it seems odd, yet to say they have been killed by the spirit of the child makes even less sense, both in the story and grammatically.
please help!

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
I dont know whether.... or ....
would the ellipses be acc + participles or is "poteron" strong enough to break the clause and the ellipses be ...

Intransitive Verbs

Hi all,

I have two questions to ask:

I know that an intransitive verb is one that cannot take a direct object such as "to die" for example. However in exercise 153 it says verbs such as 'believe' and 'obey' are intransitive. Am I right in thinking that they are only intransitive in Latin? "John believes Fred" or "John obeys Fred" are obviously allowed in English and so would be a transitive verb. Im pretty ...

NLGR: Mandarin book recommendation

This is Not Latin or Greek Related. Just wondering whether anyone can recommend a good book for learning Mandarin. Preferably one that focuses more on pinyin rather than script. I would like to learn how to speak Mandarin first, and then work on characters later.
