Thanks for the memory jogger, Chris. I think the debate in the WG was
the desire to use <q> when alluding to OT passages, which I adamantly
opposed, as it would seem to imply a linguistic structure equivalent to:
And in Psalm 119 it says, "....."
When in fact, the NT authors often only allude to OT passages-- far from
quoting them verbatim, and often combining from multiple sources to make
their point, at hand. Doing a quick scan of the OSIS 2.1.1 spec it
looks like Patrick incorporated that debate with the following semantic
which sanctions a few official seg types, (still allowing non-sanctioned
<xs:union memberTypes="osisSegs attributeExtension"/>
So, yes, DM is correct about using <seg type="otPassage"> (which doesn't
include any misunderstood connotation about how literal the author might
be 'quoting' the otPassage). I think Patrick threw in the "alluded"
type as well from the debate, but I suspect he was just being safe that
he didn't misunderstand the resolution. Maybe a good item to review if
there is ever another OSIS meeting. :) I didn't remember using this for
the first rev of the NASB. It was likely invalid at the time of first use.
