[B-Greek] Differentiating between man/woman, husband/wife

Without looking it up (okay, I looked it up) σύζυγος in the NT does not
mean "husband," but "companion" and νὐμφη does not mean "wife" but
"bride", or I think in one place "daughter-in-law."  I think David is right, in
the NT the (only?) word for husand is ANHR/ANQRWPOS and the (only?) word for
wife is GUNH.  Only the context differentiates. 
 
I do agree, though, that Modern Greek and Biblical Greek are one
language.

ναὶ ἐρωτῶ καὶ σέ, γνήσιε σύζυγε,
συλλαμβάνου αὐταῖς, αἵτινες ἐν τῷ
εὐαγγελίῳ 
καί σύ γνήσιος σύζυγος συλλαμβάνω αὐτός
ὅστις ἐν ὁ εὐαγγέλιον συναθλέω

καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα καὶ ἡ νύμφη λέγουσιν,
ἔρχου. καὶ ὁ ἀκούων εἰπάτω
καὶ θυγάτηρ ἐπὶ τὴν μητέρα, πενθερὰ ἐπὶ
τὴν νύμφην αὐτῆς καὶ νύμφη 
υἱὸς ἀτιμάζει πατέρα θυγάτηρ
ἐπαναστήσεται ἐπὶ τὴν μητέρα αὐτῆς
νύμφη
καὶ θαμαρ ἡ νύμφη αὐτοῦ ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ τὸν
φαρες καὶ τὸν ζαρα πάντες υἱοὶ ιουδα

Μodern Greek is based on Biblical Greek, it is one language.

But this is modern Greek, is it not?
I think it is more a context thing in the NT.
