George Somsel:
and verbs aren't capitalized in German any more than adjectives are

There's one exception, of course: Gerund.

That isn't really an exception since a gerund is a noun.

Oh my goodness, please children, could you please stop this nonsense ?

 

Love one another, report that it needs to be changed, and open up another thread for this discussion, please !

Pastor Andy,

I think we do love one another (at least speaking for my part) - we're just discussing grammar. But, yes, we could open up another thread for this.

@George:

Of course a gerund is a noun. But it is a noun consisting of an infinitive verb form (in German: "substantiviertes Verb")

Sorry, stoppin' here. Smile

I agree.  This isn't about any dislike for one another but simply about the syntax of a sentence title.  I already stopped since we weren't getting anywhere and aren't likely to.  You staked out your position, and I staked out mine.  We simply don't agree.

Back to the topic of the thread...this preview really excites me even further for the EEC.  I'm definitely keeping my pre-order and looking forward to June 1 and December 1!  I really wish there were more volumes coming sooner! Sad

Yes. Same here. I wish there were more volumes being released; like a New Testament volume. This series looks very promising In terms of depth of coverage and scholarship. I like what I have seen so far, enough to convince me that It is worth having In my library.

Beer Let's agree that we don't agree and have a Wittenbergisch beer on it, like Luther would have said! :) Or, in case you abstain from alcohol, let's just shake hands (unfortunately, there's no icon for this here).

I should not give you information beyond what is to be announced by Logos, but there are some good things happening later this spring and early summer.

For those struggling to read the website, here's a PDF preview. The same files, just in an easier format for you:

EEC Ezra Preview (PDF)

As for the fonts, etc., this hasn't been typeset. When most books are published, usually the author writes the book in Word, then sends it to the publisher for editing (which also happens in Word). It's only when the book is finalised that it's properly typeset. Of course, as this is an electronic production, no typesetting is required (though tagging is needed instead). That's why it looks basic, and why the font is Times New Roman.

Incidentally, I was initially surprised by the footnote style, where the whole title of a book is repeated rather than ibid. or idem. being used (look at footnotes 17 & 18 on pg 9 of the PDF as an example). But in hindsight, the suggested format is much better for an electronic book, where scanning earlier footnotes to see what the ibid. or idem. relates to can be very annoying. I guess there'll be other small advantages in being straight to electronic we'll find over time.

I have found this is becoming more commonplace in electronic texts because in the editing process, it's so easy to move text around and all of a sudden your "ibid"'s are wrong!  Footnotes #16 just got moved after footnote #19. I think we'll continue to see more of this in the future.

phew.  I was starting to have visions of my days in Klenze Gymnasium, Deutsch Unterricht, in München.

Thanks for the "tease" Big Smile

I think I'll keep my pre-order. In the vast scheme of things, $700 is not a whole lot of money.

I suspect that most people will find that it's worth at least $400, so if it turns out the pig in the poke is not all it might have been, that's only a $300 loss, which is no big deal, esp. when factored over 7-8 years. Maybe this way of doing the math will convince some of y'all to stay in if you're having doubts. Cool
