Thank you for the corrections. You are correct, "wary" is the proper
language, my mind and my fingers were (are?) not working together (BTW--one
of Wallace's colleagues down the street who was adjunct at Criswell told me
that the reason behind it is that he just doesn't know enough about it). I
do agree with you about Young's section on Discourse Analysis, it's not
thorough, but it does wet the appetite of one who has been caught up in the
model that has so dominated our study over the past century--which, although
based on a prescriptive view of grammar, I think still has value (i.e.
allowing semantic and discourse analysis to be based upon a good
morpho-syntactic analysis yet still allowing for transformational/case
grammar in a Halladian kind of way--as you can see I try to be ecclectic).
I do indeed have so much learning to go. I was not aware of Levinsohn's and
Dooley's work, next time I get down to Duncanville, I'll have to look at it
and maybe buy it, though I have found Semantics and Translation (Barnwell)
and The SSWC (Kopisec, et al.) to be of value.
BTW, does any one know of any work that has been done with regards to
speech-act theory in relationship to conditional clauses in Greek? A little
birdie placed a bug in my ear about it a few months back and I'm just now
getting around to thinking about it.
