That is, <rough breathing>-eta-kappa-omega.

What evidence is usually adduced in support of this verb with the
meaning 'come'?  Are there any counterexamples which could be cited
against analyzing it simply as 'be-present', with a prior motion
implicated rather than explicitly stated?  Consider a possible English
rendering of Lk 15.27 (parable of the prodigal son returning):  "Your
brother is here."  One could say a movement is implied, (since
physical laws prevent star-trek-like beaming around), but certainly
it is not in focus in the sentence. Are there any cases where the
motion is entailed by the lexical item itself (e.g. I came from X, to
X, etc., without another motion verb).  I'm still waiting on the Mac
acCordance, you see ;-)
