I'm having a devil of a time with something seemingly so simple. I'm looking for a definition for the term syntactic force. Search has thousands of hits but no definition. What does this term mean? I even turned to the OED without a shred of help a seeming blind alley. Help me please.

I like Carl Conrad's comment on the blizzard of terms by the blogger. "The syntactic force, as I understand it, is the the translation value of the form, once the contextual factors are taken into account."

Dr. Runge if you happen to come across this poor man's thread. I would much appreciate it if you would give a For Dummies definition of this term and its place in the study of Greek.

Syntactic force is how a word actually works in a sentence as opposed to it's syntactic form which tells you what how to expect it to work.

But I am not Dr. Runge nor am I always in agreement with him.

Your explanation is clear and readily understood. Thanks!

Syntactic Force is what you want (or need) another person's words to mean, best described in a forceful confident way. For example, when your Mom suggests you clean up your room, SF means it was only a suggestion, subject to later clarification.
