Headword: *diaugi/a
Adler number: delta,803
Translated headword: shining
Vetting Status: high
The Theologian [writes] "not with the shinings of [sc. precious] stones."[1] This [word] is written with iota and is paroxytone; but in the Attic dialect it is proparoxytone. If the present discourse atticizes, we ought to make this word proparoxytone, saying diau/geia like a)me/leia ["negligence"].[2]
Greek Original:
*diaugi/a: o( *qeolo/gos: mh\ li/qwn diaugi/ais. tou=to dia\ tou= i gra/fetai kai\ parocu/netai: proparocu/netai de\ e)n tw=| a)ttiki/zein. ei) de\ o( parw\n lo/gos a)ttiki/zei, proparocu/nein o)fei/lomen diau/geian le/gontes, w(s a)me/leian.
[1] From Gregory of Nazianzus, Oration 38 (PG 36.316; PG 35.1173a in Adler), where the form diaugei/ais is printed.
[2] If the accent is on the third syllable from the end, the rules of accentuation require that the final alpha be short; and in fact the iota must be replaced with epsiloniota, as at delta 802. For a)me/leia or a)meli/a, see alpha 1547.
