Headword: *kw=lon
Adler number: kappa,2244
Translated headword: limb, clause
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] a segment of speech composed out of two or more parts; for the syllables[1] and the "limbs" (kôla) of meaning are divided up.
So a 'clause' [is] a verse that has a detached meaning.[2]
Greek Original:
*kw=lon: mo/rion lo/gou e)k du/o h)\ kai\ pleio/nwn merw=n sunista/menon: ta\s sullaba\s ga\r te/mnousi kai\ ta\ kw=la tw=n nohma/twn. *kw=los ou)=n o( a)phrtisme/nhn e)/xwn e)/nnoian sti/xos.
For this headword in another sense see already kappa 2243.
[1] Drachmann proposed restoring tw=n o)noma/twn after te/mnousi: "the syllables of words and the limbs of meaning".
[2] The latter definition is also in the Etymologicum Gudianum s.v. kw=los; see also kappa 1039 for the Stoic grammarians' definitions this derives from ("detached expression"). The noun is normally neuter (kw=lon); the Suda's masculine form is attested mainly in lexica and grammars.
