t is the basic recognizable sentence structure? &nbsp;How does a Greek writer go about constructing his sentence? &nbsp;&nbsp;In English we more or less construct the sentence in a particular way, but I have never heard anyone talk about this in Greek (of course I may have been asleep in that class). &nbsp;<br><br>If I have perceived what I have learned correctly, in Greek the sentence is much less important than the paragraph. &nbsp;Does that effect the way Greeks construct their sentences, so that they frame them with a larger perspective in mind?<br><br>If this is a dumb question, please forgive me, and put it down to only having had one cup of tea this morning so far!<br><br>Paul F.
