Headword: Neôta
Adler number: nu,241
Translated headword: next year
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] the following year; that is, in the future.[1]
[It is derived], so they say, from e)/n, e)/nosta, and by deletion of the s e)/nota, and by transposition of the e and lengthening of the omicron into omega ne/wta.[2] "A farmer is always rich next year."[3] Or [formed] out of ne/ws ["newly"], whence newsti/ ["recently"], ne/wsta (like dh/ "so", dh=ta "so indeed" and e)pei/ "then", e)/peita "thereupon"), and by the elimination of the s ne/wta.[4] Something [encountered] anew, and lately.
Greek Original:
Neôta: to epion etos: êtoi eis to mellon. para to enos phasin, enosta, kai apeleusei tou s1 enota, kai metathesei tou e kai ektasei tou o eis ô neôta. aiei geôrgos es neôta plousios. ê ek tou neôs, ex hou to neôsti, neôsta, hôs dê, dêta, epei, epeita, kai ekdromêi tou s1 neôta. to ek neou, kai enanchos.
[1] Likewise or similarly in other lexica (references at Photius nu169 Theodoridis); and cf. epsiloniota 294.
[2] The derivation is also given in the Etymologicum Gudianum, the Etymologicum Magnum, and Lexicon ai)mwdei=n; the Etym.Magn. explicitly glosses e)/nos as e)niauto/s "anniversary". See generally this cluster of related terms in LSJ s.v.: e)/nos (A), "year"; e)/nos (B), "the day after tomorrow"; and e(/nos (C), "belonging to the former of two periods".
[3] Considered proverbial (already at alpha 608): Zenobius 2.43; attributed to Philemon fr. 82 Kock = part of 85 Kassel-Austin (through John Stobaeus), Theopompus fr. 1 DemiaƄczuk = 7 K.-A. (through Photius' Lexicon), Epicharmus fr. 233 Kaibel (but not in K.-A.).
[4] A more promising attempt; cf. Doric ne/ws "newly = next year", and the use of "new year" in English and Modern Greek (to ne/o xro/no). Ps.Zonaras' derivation is also from ne/os.
