Would not the Ascensive use of KAI have some bearing
on the issue of prominence given to the first item?
Each "even" "also" "namely" seems to give equality to
the two nominals in such a translation/understanding.
In John 3:5:
EAN MH TIS GENNHQHi EX hUDATOS KAI PNEUMATOS...
Seems like "prominence" ought to be given to the PNEUMATOS,
although this is in the unemphatic position.
Finally, I note that Smyth translates QEOI KAI ZEUS: "the
gods and above all Zeus." Where the first item is the
general term and the second item specific.
