Blass—Debrunner-Funk starting on page 7 has a very wordy difficult to read treatment of this stuff which goes on for 15-20 pages. Most everything is eventually discussed. Bruce M. Metzger forty years ago cited this is the source for English readers. That is the problem with most my library. It is old. With the exception of text linguistics most of my reference works are written for and by previous generations. Who sits down these days and reads 25 pages of Blass—Debrunner-Funk to get answer to a question?
A table would be nice. Quick reference.
