I prefer to think of the Cases like this: 8 functions, 5 forms. And, I would
make sure you are not equivocating here with your friend.
When you say: 8 "case" is superior to 5 "case"
Just how do you define "case?"
If according to function, 8 wins.
If according to form, 5 wins.
I suspect that once you define your terms, both of you may be in more
agreement than you thought.
I am not sure how this might help, but here is something that bothered me
once I found out otherwise:
I use to hear (no, still do) that "this is an Ingressive Aorist." Or, "this
is a Culminative Aorist." Then I found out their was only one "form," but
that the Aorist could "function" in different ways.
I have since thought it would be better to say:
"Based on the development of this text, the author appears to be using the
Aorist in an "Ingressive sense."
Good luck in checking out the Archives.
