Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses upon the findings on New Testament Greek aspect in the indicative mood and applies them directly to the non-indicative moods. It addresses pertinent translation issues concerning the syntax of clauses and sentences, as well as larger discourse units. The chapter talks about imperative, subjunctive and optative moods, infinitives and participles and conditional clauses. It discusses the three main uses of the infinitives, substantive, modifier, and predicate. The chapter also discusses the two grammatical constructions of the participles and syntactical uses of the participles, which includes substantive, modifier of substantive, modifier of verb, commanding, and circumstantial/adverbial uses. It examines conditional clauses in the Greek New Testament with the intention of developing a consistent system of accurately translating the original into Mandarin.

Keywords: Conditional Clauses; Greek New Testament; imperative; infinitive; Mandarin; modifier; Non-Indicative Moods; predicate; Substantive
