would you have us believe that every occurance of a word always carries the
same meaning? Does context mean nothing? Does "light" always mean "not
heavy, not obese"? Given your supposition about Tamar are you suggesting
that every occurance of ekporneuw results in pregnancy? You must, since you
imply that words always mean the same thing in spite of context.
