Headword: *ba/dize
Adler number: beta,18
Translated headword: walk!
Vetting Status: high
Also [sc. attested is] badi/zou [used] in place of ba/dize.[1] Cratinus [sc. uses it].[2]
Greek Original:
*ba/dize. kai\ *badi/zou, a)nti\ tou= ba/dize. *krati=nos.
Likewise in ps.-Zonaras, and cf. Photius, Lexicon beta16; Adler also cites a comparable entry in the Ambrosian Lexicon (234).
The unglossed primary headword is the present imperative (second person singular) of badi/zw, evidently quoted from somewhere but too commonplace to track down.
[1] That is, the middle-voice imperative can be used instead of the active. See further, next note.
[2] Cratinus fr. 391 Kock (421 Kassel-Austin). Kock suggested that this word is spoken by a character being lampooned for solecisms (in this instance, using a middle form where an active form is appropriate), like Datis in Aristophanes, Peace 289 ff. (web address 1); cf. delta 89.
