My attempt to interpret
Rom 6:14b OU GAR ESTE hUPO NOMON ALLA hUPO CARIN
raised a question about the function of
OU X ALLA Y.
The usual understanding of OU hUPO NOMON ALLA hUPO CARIN
is that "hUPO NOMON" and "hUPO CARIN" are exclusive of each other.
But does the form "OU X ALLA Y" always imply such an exclusion?
My intuition is that "ALLA Y" may be used to cancel some implication
of "OU X" which the speaker does not intend but which the hearer
might infer from "OU X".
Assuming that it is not so different from English "not X but Y",
let me consider an example:
Tom did not take the final exam, but he submitted an excellent
Here "submit an excellent term paper" is not the direct
opposite to "not take the final exam".
As another example, consider
" Tom did not very well in his courses, but did well in math".
Are my examples different from Rom 6:14b?
