Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy X. 1349 (iv/A.D.) ἐπειδὴ ἐξῆλθα ἀπὸ σοῦ ἐχθὲς μὴ διαλεχθείς σοι περὶ τῆς κυθίδος (i.e. κυθρ. = χυτρ.). P Petr III. 43 (3).15 (B.C. 240) ἔτι δὲ [οὐ ]κ ἀγνοεῖς ὡς σοὶ διελέγην περὶ τοῦ ση [σ ]άμου, ";you know how I conversed with you about the sesame"; (Edd.). BGU IV. 1080.11 (? iii/A.D.) καθὼς οὖν ὁ ἀδελφός σου Ἀμμωνᾶς διείλεκταί μοι περὶ ὑμῶν καὶ τῶν ὑμῶν πραγμάτων. P Flor II. 132.3 (A.D. 257) τοῖς κωμάρχαις τῆς Ταυρείνου διελέχθην περὶ τοῦ υἱοῦ τοῦ ὀνηλάτου. These instances will suffice to show that διαλέγεσθαι has in the vernacular the use seen in Mark 9:34. Elsewhere in the NT, as Bp E. L. Hicks points out in CR i. p. 45, ";it always is used of addressing, preaching, lecturing,"; a use which he shows to be predominant in inscriptions.
