δοκεῖ μοι «ϖῶς» μὲν ταρφύστερόν τε ϗ ϖυκνότερον,
It seems to me that, on the one hand, «ϖῶς» is more frequent and common,


«ϖῇ» δὲ δήπȣ σπανιώτερον ἰδεῖν.
while to me perhaps «ϖῇ» is a rarer thing to behold.

ϖῶς δοκεῖς ;
How þinkest ðou?

There's no difference in meaning though?

« ϖῶς» μὲν βȣ́λεται λέγειν «ἐν ϖοίῳ τρόπῳ;» oἶμαι, «ϖῇ» δὲ « ἐν ϖοίῃ ὁδῷ;» .

Spoiler: show
Viz. Smyth's handy CORRELATIVES chart @ §346

http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/tex ... apter%3D16



Two main differences:
1) Original case: ϖῇ is a fossilized DAT, while ϖῶς is a fossilized old ABL. I don’t know if there’s a shade of meaning we (as non-native anachromnistic speakers) miss, but, well, there it is: one difference.

2) In Smyth’s chart, he refers to ϖῇ as “Way”, as in “which way?” or “which direction?” Additionally, not in Smyth’s chart but in the Middle Liddell, it is also used like “To what end?” in Herodotus, and even rarely as “Where?” in Sophocles.



Smyth refers to ϖῶς with the word “Manner”, as in “what manner?” or “in what guise?”

It’s pretty much the go-to word for “How?”

Another Litmus test would be to access the texts themselves, and see what kinds of answers « ϖῇ» and « ϖῶς» generated. Sounds like a reasonable Classics/Tech research thesis.

So that we may have some clearer idea

At least some of the crazy Greek alternate miniscule letter-forms have some more or less definite placements.

Initial Forms :

ϐ
ϑ
ϖ
ρ

Medio-Final Forms
β
θ
π
ϱ

So, for example, /'bar.ba.ros/ would be written


ϐάϱβαϱος


/θe.'o.θen/

ϑεόθεν


/'pi.pto:/

ϖίπτω


/re:.to:.ri.ke:/

ῥητωϱική


Gamma and Tau have alternate tall forms which seem to get used almost indiscriminately- anybody with a resource that nails the distinction in usage would be most appreciated [:D]

Jury's out on Kappa & Phi - Again, anybody have a reliable source to quote?
ϰκ / φϕ

χαίρετε, τοῦ "μέλλειν" ἐνθυμοῦμαι καὶ πῶς ἐργάζεται.
Hey again, I've been thinking about "μέλλειν" and how it works. (In Koine Greek and/or Attic Greek)

δοκεῖ σοι; εἶδον ταῦτα μεθερμηνευόμενα ὡς "going to" καὶ "about to"· πῶς δὲ ρελάτουσι μετὰ τοῦ μέλλοντος;
What do you think? I've seen it translated as "going to" and "about to". How does it relate (I dunno the Greek) to the future tense?

τò μέλλον ῎ȣ μὲν ἐθέλει λέγειν τò ἐσόμενον, ἐθέλει δὲ τò πϱαχθησόμενον εἴτε τῇ ἀποκαϱαδοκίᾳ εἴτε τῇ πληϱοϕοϱίᾳ.

The "μέλλον " doesn't mean what will be {simple futurity}, but rather what will be done with intense expectation or certainty.

οὐκ ἤθελον οὔδεν ἀνοίσειν, περὶ τὴν κοινωνίαν θέλω αἰτῆσαι τοῦ μέλλειν καὶ τοῦ ἐσόμενου.
I wasn't wanting to refer to anything, I wanted to ask about the relationship between μέλλειν and the simple future.

ἄτοπον ὀλιγῶς εἰπεῖν, ὁ μέλλων (᾽ȣχ ὁ ἐσόμενος) ἀναϕέϱει τῷ ὑστέϱῳ χϱόνῳ κατὰ τὴν ἑλληνικὴν γϱαμματικὴν . ἡ μετοχὴ « μέλλων » ἔοικε πϱαγματικῶς ἴση τῷ ἐσoμέvῳ (؛ ;).

A little strange to say, in greek grammar, « μέλλων » refers to the future (not ἐσόμενος ). The participle «μέλλων» seems to be functionally equivalent to ἐσόμενος (‽؟).

μέλλειν ἐστὶν τὸ πϱοκαταλαμβανόμενον ἐνδειχθέν ἡ κτίσις Ζήνωνος τȣ̃ Ἐλεάτȣ.

Mellein is the prospective marker invented by Zeno of Elea.

Koine :ell:

Ways to say I liked {it} / {it} pleased me (all NT except were bracketed) *NB: Not in any order of frequency.

ἤρεσεν ἐναντίον μου [LXX]
ἐν ᾧ ηὑδόκησα
ἤρεσέν μοι
ἔστιν ἀρεστόν μοι
[Epicteti Dissertationes Lib I, Cap 13]
ἀρεστόν ἐστί μοι
ἀρεστόν ἐστιν ἐνώπιον μοῦ.

Quite possibly other ways, since :ell: has a mutable/legoable syntax.
