     Could someone please comment on nouns with the -IKOS suffix?  N.T. 
Wright said in a lecture at Crighton College in 2003 that -IKOS nouns refer 
to animation, and not substance. Thus "fleshly" and "spiritual" are not good 
translations of YUMATIKOS and PNEUMATIKOS in 1 Cor 15:44. Rather we should 
say "flesh-animated" and "spirit-animated." I cannot find any help from my 
grammars. Thank you.
