yes, there are examples, like the kai idou you quoted.
several often-overlooked items continually need to be examined like
imperfect vs. aorist verbs, idiomatic singulars versus plurals, complex
vocabulary versus simple stem vocabulary (inc. adverbial -os, a-privative,
prepositional compounds), word order of course.
and minor agreements are important, especially if hebraic. but minor
agreements tend to be short and they are usually ignored, hebraic or
'much more significant' is probably an overstatement when singly applied to
minor agreements, since the minor agreements are already marginalized by
the name minor.
the bottom line, of course, is that this is very fertile ground for study
and repays the investment.
