Hi Clayton,

I agree 100% with what you said. The two tools clearly have their own
distinctive functions and purposes. I am also one of those guys "standing in
line" to get my copy of BDAG, looking forward to it very much. I was only
responding to the suggestion that giving priority (or at least "equal time")
to definitions over glosses is somehow "revolutionary."
