Headword: Ὑποκοριζόμενοι
Adler number: upsilon,517
Translated headword: nicknaming
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they who are] ridiculing. Xenophon [writes]: "those who hate me call me Badness, nicknaming [me].".[1] But Demosthenes used the word in reference to [people] palliating and calling something bad with a good name. For he says in the [speech] on the False Embassy: "they impose on themselves a servitude of their own choosing, nicknaming it Philip's guest-friendship and comradeship and and suchlike."[2]
"[... him] looking away into the crowd, to learn where the 'slaves' seemed to him to come from -- for thus was he nicknaming the ex-soldiers."[3]
Greek Original:
Ὑποκοριζόμενοι: διασύροντες. Ξενοφῶν φησιν: οἱ δὲ μισοῦντές με ὑποκοριζόμενοι ὀνομάζουσι κακίαν. ὁ δὲ Δημοσθένης ἐχρήσατο τῇ λέξει ἐπὶ τοῦ εὐφημοῦντες καὶ τὸ αἰσχρὸν εὐφήμως ὀνομάζοντες. λέγει γὰρ ἐν τῷ Παραπρεσβείας: αὐθαίρετον αὐτοῖς ἐπάγονται δουλείαν, Φιλίππου ξενίαν καὶ ἑταιρείαν καὶ τὰ τοιαῦτα ὑποκοριζόμενοι. πυνθάνεσθαι εἰς τὸ πλῆθος ἀποβλέποντα, ποδαποὶ δοκοῖεν αὐτῷ εἶναι οἱ παῖδες, οὕτω γὰρ ὑποκοριζόμενος ἐκάλει τοὺς στρατευσαμένους.
The headword, presumably extracted from the first quotation given, is present participle, masculine nominative plural, of ὑποκορίζομαι .
