Vetting Status: high
[Meaning a] subtle talker. Also [sc. attested us] stenolesxi/a ["quibbling"], [meaning] the same.
Greek Original:
Stenoleschês: leptologos. kai Stenoleschia, to auto.
Similarly in other lexica; references at Photius sigma526, where Theodoridis notes instances of stenolesxi/a in Cyril of Alexandria.
To describe 'quibbler' and 'quibbling' as 'the same' results from a rather clumsy amalgamation of these two elements.
cf. sigma 1038.
