yes, the 'deja-vu' is correct. It's all statistics, adjustments, and Chomsky, with zero pragmatics and zero real language fit of data to context. Taylor assumes that the pragmatics will just 'factor out', which is a bad assumption for real language data, especially across genre.
Bottom line for students: stay with the V-S-O/X of Dik 1995 and most who have done discourse work on the Koine. Non-functional, non-cognitive theories are not good models for dealing with word order. .

Us folk of limited means are able to read Acts in "Swanson". That is fairly satisfying because all of the differences between B and D are highlighted and one gets to see the original spellings and all of the other witnesses too.
