Carl, can we include Greek discourse structure and rhetorical impact as
well? These are areas of study that I'm finding illuminate semantics and

One example: KAI and DE often function not so much as syntactic
coordinators, but as signals of important discourse relationships (that is,
structure higher than the sentence level).
