1 Timothy 2:12. DIDASKEIN DE GUNAIKI OUK EPITREPW OUDE AUQENTEIN ANDROS ALL'
EINAI EN hHSUCIA.

Lenski calls OUDE in this sentence "explicative OUDE."

He says, "If this statement were positive it would be followed by an
explicative KAI; since it is negative, we have explicative OUDE, for
'neither to excercise authority over a man' states the point involved in the
forbidding 'to teach.'"

I think he is correct, however, I cannot find "explicative OUDE" in my
grammars. Any input?
