  • Mark Edward

    Glad to see his study is making the rounds.

  • Ann F-R

    Interesting and thoughtful study. (I also hadn’t realize how closely related Greek & Coptic were.) Watson’s post scripts were thought-provoking, too. We seem to prefer muddy waters over clear waters, when we’re on self-justifying quests.
