Jerry: "Indeed, this is one of the reasons why I think it is illegitimate
to straitjacket the meaning of the biblical text into a preconceived
"single unique meaning" lexeme theory that at the same both ignores sound
linguistic theory and subjects the biblical text to one's own whims."

Karl: "This sounds like a complete misreading and misstating of what I do
and say. Whatever you mean by “single unique meaning”, it doesn’t sound at
all what I say. In other words, you play Humpty Dumpty with my words, and
make them say something other than what I intended. Evidence: you latch
onto that phrase in isolation without considering the whole of what I have
said on the subject."

Karl (5/3/2013): "So when one looks at a snapshot of a language, i.e. the
use of a language at one point in time, there are very few exceptions, even
in modern languages, that each lexeme has one unique meaning."
