Stirling, Could you elaborate on what you mean by "strange"?
I'm not Stirling, but...
They use a different set of terminology than traditional Greek grammar. That's all. As I said above, Runge's book is extremely accessible for NT Greek students and scholars and goes to great lengths to make everything quite understandable. And that's because he's writing to that particular audience. He's trying to bridge the gap. Levinsohn's stuff is more difficult because he's writing primarily to an audience of linguists and translators in missions organizations like Wycliffe.
