> KATA- generally has an intensifying effect.


I wonder about this. I have read a number of KATAs both independent ones
and ones in compound verbs. I know that there are grammars which say
that " KATA- generally has an intensifying effect" but I remain
unconvinced of this by my observation of KATA in actual use. I suspect
that any statement about what KATA generally means will be generally
wrong. But you know I am a contrarian by nature, always attacking the
conventional wisdom on questions like "what does KATA mean?" I am not
sure that questions like "what does KATA mean?" are the sort of
questions that can be answered in any general way. To the b-greek
veterans this observation will draw a lot of yawns and perhaps a some
remark like "there he goes again."
