A Grammatical and Exegetical Study of New Testament Verbs of by Paul Danove; PDF

This examine keeps the variation of the tactic of Case body research for the research of the Greek textual content of the recent testomony. Case body research distinguishes the phrases of a language into different types, predicators [words that require finishing touch by means of different phrases for his or her right grammatical use] and non-predicators [words that don't require such completion], and offers rigorous techniques for describing the syntactic, semantic, and lexical standards that predicators impose at the phrases that whole their that means.
