Paul Danove, «A Comparison Of The Usage Of Akouw And Akouw- Compounds In The Septuagint And New Testament», Vol. 14 (2001) 65-86
This study characterizes all occurrences of a0kou/w and seven related verbs (a0ntakou/w, diakou/w, ei0sakou/w, e0nakou/w, e0pakou/w, parakou/w, and u9pakou/w) in the Septuagint and New Testament according to their semantic and syntactic properties, develops a single set of rules to describe the distribution of noun phrase objects of these verbs, and then compares the patterns of usage of these verbs in the Septuagint and New Testament. A preliminary discussion identifies the semantic and syntactic properties necessary to describe all biblical occurrences of a0kou/w and proposes a set of descriptive rules that govern the syntactic case of its noun phrase objects. Further investigation then indicates that this same set of rules with only one minor modification also is adequate to describe the syntactic case of noun phrase objects of the noted a0kou/w-compounds. The discussion concludes by comparing the distribution of noun phrase objects in particular syntactic cases within the Septuagint and New Testament.
