I think I have a basic idea now of the restrictions on Greek usage arising from the speech-style dependent vocabulary moieties, and am perhaps ready to produce more idiomatic Greek.

The following two verses seem similar, because they are both based one single moiety key vocabulary items being used in gramatically independent phrases. They may be suitable to serve as models to base compositions on.
Mark 6:39,40 wrote:Καὶ ἐπέταξεν αὐτοῖς ἀνακλῖναι πάντας συμπόσια συμπόσια ἐπὶ τῷ χλωρῷ χόρτῳ. 40 Καὶ ἀνέπεσον πρασιαὶ πρασιαί, ἀνὰ ἑκατὸν καὶ ἀνὰ πεντήκοντα.
Luke 22:55 wrote:Ἁψάντων δὲ πῦρ ἐν μέσῳ τῆς αὐλῆς, καὶ συγκαθισάντων αὐτῶν, ἐκάθητο ὁ Πέτρος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν.
Here are two attempts at sentence blends within the constraints of the vocabulary restrictions:
συγκαθισάντων τῶν συγγενῶν τε καὶ φίλων συμπόσια συμπόσια ἐπὶ τῷ χλωρῷ χόρτῳ, ἐκάθητο ὁ τά γενέσια ἑορτάζων ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν.
κατέσεισεν τῇ χειρὶ τοῖς ἀλλαντοπώλαις ἀνακλῖναι ἐν τῷ μακέλῳ. καὶ ἀνέπεσον ἐπὶ θρανίων καὶ τραπεζῶν.

Have I gone outside the speech-style dependent vocabulary restrictions in those compositions?
