      My site can help with this. http://www.gospel-thomas.net/splitv.htm
      ... where the Greek words are colored-coded. Unfortunately,
      I see that I haven't (yet) done that with the lexicon,
      which is maybe where you got your list of occurrences?

      Well, I didn't actually propose 'listen' as a general equivalent. In the
      one saying that has a Markan analogue, it seems to work, but elsewhere
      probably not. It occurred to me later that maybe 'hark!' might work in all
      cases, but then I looked it up and my OAD says 'hark' means 'listen'.
      (Though 'hark back' apparently means 'remember' inter alia!)

      They are. And welcome, too.
