Headword: *mni/ei
Adler number: mu,1173
Translated headword: consumes, ingests
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning he/she/it] eats.
Greek Original:
*mni/ei: e)sqi/ei.
Note:
The headword (evidently quoted from somewhere, though now attested only in lexica) is the third person singular, present indicative active, of the very rare verb mni/ein. This entry also appears at Hesychius mu1517 and Photius mu490 Theodoridis; and cf. the grammarians Herodian and Theognostus on the first person singular. The present infinitive, likewise, is glossed in Hesychius kappa1269, which is an entry for its compound: katamniei=: katapi/nei, katesqi/ei. *mni/ein ga\r to\ e)sqi/ein. Chantraine makes no comment on the etymology.
