RE: Greek Indirect Objects

As I taught through Greek this summer, I was thinking just the same thing. I
observed all the dative uses that were presumably instances of the indirect
object, and none diverged significantly from the dative of goal/destination.
That's very far from saying that there's no need for the category, but I'm
inclined to think that (at least) there's no need for me to introduce an
additional category to beginning students.
