Some of the others on the list may disagree with me but I'll give you my sense of how DE is used in the New Testament. DE connects actions where there is even the slightest distinction made between two things such as a change in speaker. I asked but (DE) you answered. In John 19:13-14 Pilate heard the word and (KAI) sat down and (KAI) spoke to the Jews. In this discourse, actions not initiated by Pilate are connected by DE.
