Headword: *(etoi/mws
Adler number: epsilon,3339
Translated headword: readily
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] preparedly.[1] But e)tu/mws [means] truly.[2] [It is written] with upsilon and smooth breathing.[3]
Greek Original:
*(etoi/mws: e)mparaskeu/ws. *)etu/mws de\ a)lhqw=s. dia\ tou= u yilou= kai\ yilou=tai.
[1] The primary headword is an adverb from the adjective e(/toimos (epsilon 3338).
[2] For this equivalence see already Hesychius epsilon6666 (where Latte claims the headword as quoted from Euripides, Orestes 1357), and cf. epsilon 3340.
[3] The two adverbs had in fact come to be pronounced alike. (The Suda alphabetizes omicroniota and upsilon consecutively, indicating that they sounded the same; and all initial aspiration had been lost long before Byzantine times.)
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; tragedy
