Headword: Ἐνεῖκαι
Adler number: epsilon,1280
Translated headword: to bring
Vetting Status: high
[sc. This comes] from ἐνέκω , [future] ἐνέξω , [aorist] ἤνεκα ,[1] [and] with a superfluous iota ἤνεικα and [the infinitive] ἐνεῖκαι . The extra iota is added because every aorist which does not have sigma or ksi or psi tends to end with a long syllable, like ἔκειρα , ἔνειμα ,[2] ἤνεικα .
Greek Original:
Ἐνεῖκαι: ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐνέκω, ἐνέξω, ἤνεκα, πλεονασμῷ τοῦ ι ἤνεικα καὶ ἐνεῖκαι. ἐπλεόνασε δὲ τὸ ι, διότι πᾶς ἀόριστος μὴ ἔχων σ1 ἢ ξ ἢ ψ μακρᾷ θέλει παραλήγεσθαι, οἷον ἔκειρα, ἔνειμα, ἤνεικα.
Similarly in other lexica.
[1] Hypothetical forms
[2] These two examples, ἔκειρα and ἔνειμα , are instances of aorists from liquid stems, where the sigma combining with the liquid or nasal disappears leaving a lengthening of the preceding vowel. Hence this explanation fails to account for ἤνεικα . See also epsilon 1279, eta 382.
