I know this may be tangential but I don't know anywhere better to ask this
question. Does anyone know of any discussion of any possible
correspondence between the use of PROS and the Hebrew prepositions
incorporating FNV - e.g. LIFNY, ALFNY...? BAGD suggests one of the
translations of PROS is "in the company of, towards", Louw-Nida talk of the
use with speech verbs to denote a relationship between speaker and listener
(90.33 and 90.25) and LSJ talks of it being used with verbs of motion and
visuality to denote a similar relationship between subject and object. Is
this similar to the use of FNV prepositions in Hebrew and does it at all
emphasise the relationship between subject and object or just the
inclination/attitude of the subject?
