Thank you Carl, for sidling in. I think I do understand a difference
between the present and the aorist imperative, in much the same fashion as you
indicate (and it is a superb example). My question dealt to a greater extent
with a distinction within aorist imperatives, i.e., if the nuance within the
aorist itself (indicative, for example) would also be reflected in the
nuance(s) of the aorist imperative, or if the aorist imperative was solely used
as distinct from the present imperative, et. al.
I hope that clarifies my hope for clarification <grin>.
