Word counts for different GNTs? Titus 2:2 Dear friends,In discussing the use of the Greek infinitive, Daniel Wallace (GGBB, 606) says, “Like any other substantive, the substantival infinitive may stand in apposition to a noun, pronoun, or substantival adjective (or some other substantive).” After further explanation he includes in his list of examples Titus 2:2, in which he says the infinitive is in apposition “to an implied pronoun” (p. 607).Titus 2:1-2 reads: [1] SU DE LALEI hA PREPEI THi hUGIAINOUSHi DIDASKALIAi. [2] PRESBUTAS NHFALIOUS EINAI, SEMNOUS, SWFRONAS, hUGIAINONTAS THi PISTEI, THi AGAPH, THi hUPOMONHi.The verse seems to make perfect sense without my needing to supply any pronoun. Can anyone tell me what pronoun Dr Wallace regards as implicit here, and why?Thanks,Kevin SmithPort Elizabeth, SAkgs at iafrica.com————– next part ————–An HTML attachment was scrubbed…URL: http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail//attachments/19991007/9d0ad7b8/attachment.html

I rather suspect that whatWallace has in mind is that the entire infinitive phrase PRESBUTAS EINAI X,Y, Z, KTL. stands in opposition to the implicit subject of hA PREPEI THihUGIAINOUSHi DIDASKALIAi, which would be perhaps an implicit EKEINA, orTAUTA–those things.Carl W.
