pster wrote:2) It seems like you should be able to have examples where both members appear in a sentence in different cases. Does anybody know of such an example? Or can anybody confirm that such examples exist? I just realized I have never seen a divergence, hence the post.
3) Of course we have correlatives in English too, but these particular pairs seem somewhat strange. Can somebody give a couple of examples of how one would translate a τόσος /ὅσος and a τοῖος/οἷος sentence into English if one wanted to elucidate the meaning as best as possible? (Bonus points if at least one example has the two members in different cases.)
So I don't get what part of speech they really are. What part of speech are τοῖος and τόσος? And which part of speech are οἷος and ὅσος?
