"Paragraph" as it is used in my discussion is not related to translation at
all. "Paragraph" is a high level discourse constituent in the Greek text
which is defined recursively (as we have agreed upon previously) so that a
"Paragraph" may included subordinate paragraphs and so forth down to N
levels. In the scheme of nomenclature I am using paragraph is the next step
up from the clause in the discourse constituent structure. I make no use of
the notion sentence since several years back we tried to define sentence on
this list and Micheal Palmer made a very credible attempt at a definition
but I still find it a troublesome concept. Clause is also a recursive
constituent, clauses can contain clauses down to N levels.
