Dear Philip,

no, you aren't.
The Greek verb "laléo" is, so to say, emfatic if compared with the basic
"légo" (éipen in the past)

So, "laléo" = speak, tell, talk, chat (emfatic)... while "légo" = say
(simple, unenfatic)

That's why LXX has "elálesen" -- to reflect "diber" and not "éipen" -- to
reflect "amar".
