Hi ya,

 

  I came across this term ("level of speech") in the Getting Started Guide which I cannot find any further elaboration on in the document, or the forums, nor in the doc proper. The term does not appear in Dr. Holmstedt's PDF on the Acc syntax either.

 

N! Independent clause or sentence. (If there is a superscripted letter with the N, this
indicates a level of speech for the clause or sentence.)

 

  Can someone explain to me what a "level of speech" for a clause or sentence is ? The only cases I have found so far are NA but are there other values ? If so how should one interpret them ?

 

Thx

The level of speech refers to quotations. NA is the top level, the writer is quoting speech. If this quotation contains another quotation, the level rises to NB. There is a nice example in Gen 3:1 where the serpent asks what God said.

Thanx Helen. I wondered if that was the case. I guess your example comes from the Hebrew syntax. I'll go back and examine the NT Greek case I have again.

 

Thx

An example in the NT with both levels is Acts 17:28.

Thanx Jonathan. There is also a very clear (single level example) in the conversation in Jn 1:20-23 I see now. I'll have to find the other case I had where it was not so apparent to me..

 

Thx
