position of copulative εἰμί

Postby vir litterarum » Mon Jun 02, 2008 12:31 am

I was just wondering whether there was any rule for whether copulative εἰμί followed the subject or predicate in certain instances. In the reading I have done, it seems to have a tendency to follow a predicate noun or adjective, but it also seems to commonly follow the subject.
