  4. Who proposes a different (from Rocine's) analysis of Hebrew hortatory discourse, and what is the analysis?
    • Oakes 2010.
    • Imv-Imv chain focuses on the will of the speaker.
    • Imv-wQ chain focuses on the task to be done.
    • "Social inferiors, with rare exception, do not use the Imv-wQ chain with superiors. The Imv-wQ chain, then, finds use only by social superiors to address inferiors and by social peers to address each other."
    • There are also syntactic differences between the Imv-Imv chains and the Imv-wQ chains.
