Headword: *neogillo/n
Adler number: nu,182
Translated headword: young
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] new-born.[1]
From the [phrase] ne/on gi/nesqai ["to have been recently born"] [comes] neogi/non. And as pneu/mwn ["lung"] [is] pleu/mwn in Attic[2] -- also ni/tron [is] li/tron[3] -- so neogino/n [gives] neogilo/n.
Greek Original:
*neogillo/n: neoge/nnhton. para\ to\ ne/on gi/nesqai, neogino/n. kai\ w(s pneu/mwn, pleu/mwn *)attikw=s, kai\ ni/tron, li/tron, ou(/tw neogino/n, neogilo/n.
On the etymology and spelling of neogillo/s or neogilo/s, see LSJ s.v. (web address 1). In the supplementary paragraph here the lexicographer proposes a rule for an alternation between n and l, but bases it on two atypical examples.
[1] Likewise in Photius (nu126 Theodoridis) and elsewhere. The headword, accusative singular, is perhaps extracted from Theocritus, Idylls 17.58.
[2] cf. pi 1826.
[3] cf. nu 435, LSJ s.v. ni/tron.
