Re: Dan Wallace's Grammar

I found out something really useful about using Dan Wallace's Grammar, and
I'd like to pass it on. In his outlines, he uses two symbols which identify
(1) categories which are very important and should be committed to memory,
marked by a dark arrow, and (2) categories which are overused and should be
used sparingly, marked by a cross.

I met Dan once, and asked him about this, since I didn't know what the
symbols mean. He said that it is explained in the book somewhere, and I'm
sure it is, but he wasn't able to find the explanation either, so it seems
to be pretty hard to find.

At any rate, knowing these symbols helps me a lot with the complexity of all
the categories he gives.
