> It's been at least 15 years since I studied Greek, and I cannot at all
> remember if I even knew this to start with. How does Greek
> differentiate between man/woman, and husband/wife, given that the words
> used for man/husband and woman/wife respectively, are the same? Is it
> merely a contextual issue, or are there grammatical indicators?
