to quibble, but most people nutty enough to study Greek also care about
getting their abbreviations right). At least, that's the way Prof. Danker
refers to it. >>

What a hoot! Obviously, I had overlooked that. Although, now that you've
mentioned it, one might recall that in Danker's "Multipurpose Tools" he
noted that BAAR (the German edition by Baurer, Aland & Aland, and Viktor
Reichmann) was, by Rykle Borger, referred to as BRAA, in favor of
Reichmann's vast input. <g> I guess the acronym BDAG has been coined on the
same principle.
