I know, little Greeks with big questions...

Maybe I should just look it up in the OED? ;->

A couple of meta-comments regarding recent list activity:

1. I appreciate your irenic messages to Timothy Dickens, but I also hope that
you wouldn't be quite as irenic with me. *Please* let me know any time that
you think I should consider handling things differently in order to promote
better discussion on the list.

2. Waiting a little while is probably not a bad idea anyways.
I notice that sometimes the list just waits for Carl Conrad to answer, and
that your answer to a question is often the end of a discussion. I don't really
know if there is anything to be done here - you really are quite good, and
that is widely recognized - but maybe we could goad some of the other scholars
into answering more frequently? The current discussions between you and Edgar
Krentz on grammar and style are fascinating.
