Hi modus

I am new at this so I can't offer any help. Maybe later. But golly gee I wonder why is this forum so moribund ? You asked for help and no help was proferred.

If you tell me where the passage came from I will run it through a parsing machine at Zhubert to see if I can render it (I will try not to cheat)?

Best!

Nice of you to bump up the thread Kyneto Valesio, not so nice to jump into conclusions :)

I personally just missed the thread.

No modus I would say it's a simple optative expressing a wish but I know how this sounds. I mean you'd expect either Indicative or Subjuctive perhaps or at least a conditional optative. I am just thinking out loud here but could it be a conditional optative sans the "an"?

I am not sure about the "being dark"'s tense but I'll have to actually think about it a bit and come back to you. (How does this verb go by the way?)

Postby Kyneto Valesio » Sun May 06, 2007 8:44 pm

I was wondering how they pronounce the scritptures in a modern greek orthodox church. Is it the same as what I am learning from dobson and mounce ?

Modus

a) I meant "now" not "no" :oops:
b) I know what you mean about the "expressing wish" and its contextual impossibility. I just thought I'd mentioned it though since my automatic syntactical circuits cut in first and then logic cut in with a "whoa there!" :D
c) my question actually was "How is σκοτοῦμαι" declined? I know its meaning, I have no idea about its declination :oops:
d) all in all, since the meaning is clear I think that I'll just pretend the "an" is there and consider it "poetic licence" afterall

Kinetus

I've never read dobson and mounce (and yes you should have created a new thread :D) but they use a sort of byzantine pronounciation which is in between modern and koine and is difficult to tell apart from either really (especially when chanted I should add).

:D -- that's alright -- the "no" was probably right anyway.

It's a σκοτῶ, σκοτοῖς, etc. verb.

Yeah, I'm thinking you're right. Thanks.
