Your posts have been very helpful, especially with respect to the
discussion on the nature of a word. One thing that was mentioned
yesterday is still unclear, if you or Paul for that matter would
respond, I would like to know what is wrong with referring to the
construction as a vav or waw conversive?

What, from your perspecitive would be a more cogent explanation of the
(waw-conversive)? I have found your remarks to be rather helpful and I
am interested in the current thinking on this matter.
