A predicate expression may stand inside an attributive phrase: ὁ δεινὸς (pred.) λεγόμενος γεωργός he who is called a skilful agriculturist X. O. 19.14. This is common with participles of naming with the article.
What is the predicate expression in the example?
pster wrote:Thanks Nate. So glad you are on the case! I almost follow you. I'm sure you are right. But why is it functioning as a predicate? Why isn't it functioning as an attribuitive?
And let me ask you point blank:
1) What is the predicate expression?
2) What is the attributive phrase?
Thanks in advance.
