A — 1: σχεδόν
(Strong's #4975 — Adverb — schedon — skhed-on' )

is used either (a) of locality, Acts 19:26 , or (b) of degree, Acts 13:44 ; Hebrews 9:22 .

B — 1: μέλλω
(Strong's #3195 — Verb — mello — mel'-lo )

"to be about to do anything, or to delay," is used in connection with a following verb in the sense of "almost," in Acts 21:27 , lit., "And when the seven days were about to be completed." In Acts 26:28 the AV, "Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian" obscures the sense; the RV rightly has "with but little persuasion;" lit., "in a little." See ABOUT , B.
