      Dave Gentile originally described his categories as
      follows:

      1) Words found in document A, without a direct
      parallel in document B
      2) Words found in parallel in document A and document
      B
      3) Words found in document B with no direct parallel
      in document A

      John Lupia suggests that Dave reword these
      descriptions as follows:

      1) Words found in document A that are not contained in
      any parallel with document B.
      2) Words found in parallels between documents A and B
      3) Words found in document B that are not contained in
      any parallel with document A.

      Perhaps this clarification could be taken a step
      further:

      1) Words occurring in passages in document A but not
      occurring in parallel passages in document B.
      2) Words occurring in passages in document A and also
      occurring in parallel passages in document B.
      3) Words occurring in passages in document B but not
      occurring in parallel passages in document A.

      Let me know if this is a correct understanding and a
      further clarification.

      Ambiguity of natural langauge is the bane of
      scholarship -- even if a glory of poetry.

      Correction. The following reads: 5 Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has with A. (* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a parallel narrative

        Correction.

        The following reads:
        5 Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has with
        A.
        (* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a
        parallel narrative with A, but in a parallel phrase
        with A
        6. Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) or verse
        in B exclusively.
        (11) Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) in B
        exclusively.
        (12) Words used in a unique verse in B exclusively.


        But should be corrected as follows:
        (10) Words that are different between A & B having the
        same subject, but which are not parallel narratives.
        (11) Words in B not used by A in any parallel B has
        with A.
        (* repetitive with #2).Words in B used not in a
        parallel narrative with A, but in a parallel phrase
        with A
        6. Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) or verse
        in B exclusively.
        (12) Words used in a unique phrase (or clause) in B
        exclusively.
        (13) Words used in a unique verse in B exclusively.

        Additional note:

        Consequently, there are thirteen, not twelve
        categories.

        There are two classes of focus dictated by the design
        of the essentially required categories.

        Class 1 comprises a study of narrative parallels and
        non-parallels that show either possible redaction or
        author's style demonstrated in the following twelve
        categories:
        Categories 1, 2, (3), (4), (6), (7), (8), (9), (10),
        (11), (12), (13).

        Class 2 comprises a study of narrative parallels and
        non-parallels that show overlap between Synoptic
        Gospels sharing words and material to escalating
        degrees of verisimilitude demonstrated in the
        following five categories:
        Categories 2, (5), (6), (7), (9).

        Four categories: 2, (6), (7), (9) have dual functions
        since they share words and material that overlap as
        well as demonstrate either possible redaction or
        author's style. Each should be assessed separately.
