exegetical proposals in this post and previous posts on a somewhat related

Anyway, I am currently (in this thread) musing about the problem of trying
to define a semantic functional prototype for EK + genitive which could be
linked in some meaningful manner to EK CEIROS AUTHS in Rev 19:2c. I am a

constituent such as the pattern EK + genitive. The whole idea of "centers"
appears to be somewhat of a bugaboo in semantic theory. This is why I raised
the question. I am trying to "de-center" the center.
