Only, for what it's worth, that, if we return to Denniston's initial
discussion of TE KAI (p. 511): "(5) Corresponsive, TE KAI, TE ... KAI.
This tends very largely to replace TE ... TE."

From that point of view, we get [ [X TE] [Y TE] ]. Somehow I don't think
this brings us one inch further toward demonstration that one of these
elements is stressed more than the other.
