Headword: *pelekw=
Adler number: pi,939
Translated headword: I hew
Vetting Status: high
[Future] pelekh/sw, [sc. used in reference to] wooden things. But peleki/zw [means] I strike with a sword.
Greek Original:
*pelekw=, pelekh/sw, cu/la. *peleki/zw de\ to\ meta\ th=s spa/qhs ko/ptw.
The primary headword is first person singular, present indicative (or subjunctive), peleka/w. It is unattested outside lexicography, but the gloss might derive from commentary on Homer, Odyssey 5.244, where pele/kkhsen occurs. See also Eustathius' commentary ad loc., where a similar (but not identical) distinction is made between peleka/w and peleki/zw. Eustathius says that grammarians note that the former is used in the case of wooden objects, and the latter in the case of sheep and oxen and other living things.
