Ryan Green's comment was, "I have a strong interest in learning to read and
write (and possibly speak, though that is personally less important) New
Testament Greek." I perhaps mistakenly took that to mean he is considering
learning how to construct original sentences in that language, so as to
express himself "conversationally." Does anyone think that learning how to
do this might enhance one's grasp of the language? It is of course
important to learn how to "recite the language properly with pronunciation,
cadence, inflection..."
