Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

I will now compare Hebrew and Greek adjective inflection. Both of them closely parallel noun inflection, and they have a lot of variations. Listed by noun case, here is a summary: Hebrew: Genders: masculine, feminine m sg, f sg, ... m pl, f pl Absolute ... - -ah ... -im -ot Construct ... - -at ... -...

Selecting a few convenient examples is NOT the same thing as giving complete inflection paradigms. When one does that, one finds that Greek is VERY different from Hebrew.

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

There is many similarities between Mycenaean and Hebrew. But what differences? In Mycenaean, DI־DO means "Give" and resembles תת DIDO־MI תת־י "I Give" DIDO־SI תת־תה "You Give" DIDO־ME תת־נו "We Give" I'll transcribe the Hebrew: tt-i tt-th tt-nn Not much in common. Compare Greek and Hebrew verb conj...

Re: Logos

Ethan, I have never seen you post on where Greek and Hebrew differ. Always on what you consider similarities between the two languages. The main differ are the length of the words. Ethan, I must congratulate you for acknowledging at least one difference between Hebrew and Greek. Someone naively loo...

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

I went to blueletterbible.org and biblehub.com and I discovered that the Hebrew-Greek resemblance is not nearly as great as Ethan claims. Proverbs 23:29 -- Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaining? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? (NASB) Greek (LXX)...

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

That's lame. Look at the details. Greek and Hebrew aren't anything alike, as your examples show.

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

There is an interesting linguistic quirk in the Septuagint. Many Hebrew proper names in it were indeclinable instead of being forced into Greek noun-declension patterns. The New Testament also carries over this quirk. Indeclinable means that it stays fixed rather than have different noun-case forms....

Re: Was OT originally in Greek?

Words that don't resemble each other very much. What a big load of peresh shor.

Some of the Spanish ones I recognize as being descended from Latin, like:
decir - dicere
saber - sapere
verbo - verbum
libro - liber
escribir - scribere
curso - cursus
