 So I find I agree with Cindy in letting a text speak for itself, (looking
 for the criteria and allowing them to override sematnics if need be), and I
 agree with Stephen in that a paragraph is not 'syntactic' per se, 
 yet practically I suspect that we all agree in studying and using
 linguistic criteria for the marking/be they semantic or 'surface
 structure'. >>


Agreed.  And I find Levinsohn's discussions enlightening and useful.  

To some extent, I think that some of the differences are differences in 
starting points of analysis.
