any of you folks work through gentry's piece?  i was completely lost with
an aspectual distinction in projective mood: seems to miss a
generalization by having long yiqtol in two different columns.

at any rate, somewhat miffed that he didn't cite my work in the context of
syntax and mood: since that was the burden of my thesis, which he had ni
hand while writing: go figure. got past the readers and editors also: very
puzzling. refutes half the paper; the other half a restatement of revell
and shulman. <scratching my head>
