PAS - Every [other]?
Wed, 25 Sep 96 17:31:06 MST

I was hoping that someone on the list could direct me to one or more
grammatical references that show that PAS/PANTA can mean 'All - with the
exception of the item we just talked about in the context...'. Here are
some examples from NASB where the translation committee translated
PAS/PANTA/etc as "all other." I agree with the translations, I just cannot
find many grammars that talk about the insertion of 'other.' Or perhaps
someone could elucidate the principles where a translator would insert
"other" besides subjectivity.


Note: [PAS/OTHER are in caps]

than all OTHER Galileans because they suffered this fate?
