HI, I was thinking about the topic here and decided I'd like to try a syntax search to see if I could identify the conditionals where there is the paricle ἐὰν followed by a subjunctive verb in the same clause.
So I made a construct search that looked for ἐὰν followed by a subjunctive and put the two items under a CLAUSE ANY item.
To me that would mean that the items underneath the clause item have to be in the same clause (of any type) and that the ἐὰν must preceded the verb subjunctive as the "search both ways" button is not ticked.
Strangely, the first two results are not what I expected to see. In Matthew 5:20, not only does εἰσέλθητε appear to be in a different clause (the apodosis here), accordance doesn't hit the subjunctive περισσεύσῃ which is only 2 words away from ἐὰν. That to me is clearly within the same clause.
The second hit, Matt 18:3, again the subjunctive that Accordance selects is again in the apodosis, while the ἐὰν is in the protasis, and it misses the 2 subjunctives in the apodosis, στραφῆτε and γένησθε.
Now I know it's not Accordance's fault, it's mine for not properly understanding how the syntax works, but could someone please help me work out why this is the case?
