"Loose" differs from "firm". See under "firm".[1]
Greek Original:
*mano/n: diafe/rei to\ mano\n tou= nastou=. zh/tei e)n tw=| nasto/n.
Note:
[1] nu 44. See also mu 157 for a more concrete definition of mano/n (neuter nominative/accusative singular of the adjective mano/s). Coupled with nu 44, this appears to be the only instance of the two opposites being defined in terms of each other in lexicography; even in literature the adjectives are only contrasted in Nicetas Choniates, Orations 15 p. 148 van Dieten, and Euthymius Protasecretis, Encomium in Mariam Aegyptiacam 8.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; rhetoric
