Sorry, my mistake. I thought that Driver was writing in the 1930s. 
Perhaps there was just a new edition of his work at this time. These new 
editions make it very difficult to trace who depends on who, after all 
GKC is attributed to Gesenius 70 years after his death.

Did Driver use the word "aspect" as early as 1874?
