I am interested how to recognize hendiadys. For example, Ja 5:10:
hUPODEIGMA ... THS KAKOPAQIAS KAI MAKROQUMIAS, "example... of suffering and
patience". BDB grammer says it to be an example of hendiadys, and transates
as: "perseverance in suffering". How can we know whether it is hendiadys,
or just listing?
