Headword: *ei(/ato
Adler number: epsiloniota,13
Translated headword: they sat
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning he/she/it] sat down.[1] The imperfect [is] h(/mhn ["I sat"]; [third person plural] h(=nto, Ionic e(/ato, poetic ei(/ato.
Otherwise: e(w=, e(/hmi, e(/emai, h(=mai [and the compound] ka/qhmai ["I sit down"], h(=ntai, e(/atai in Ionic and with lengthening ei(/atai, like [singular] me/mnhtai, [plural] memne/atai.[2]
Greek Original:
*ei(/ato: e)ka/qhto. h(/mhn o( paratatiko/s: h(=nto, *)iwnikw=s e(/ato, poihtikw=s ei(/ato. a)/llws. e(w=, e(/hmi, e(/emai, h(=mai, ka/qhmai, h(=ntai, e)/atai *)iwnikw=s kai\ pleonasmw=| ei(/atai, w(s me/mnhtai, memne/atai.
[1] Adler does print third person singular e)ka/qhto (and repeats it in her apparatus), without comment; but surely the gloss should be e)ka/qhnto, as in the scholia to Homer, Iliad 7.61, where the headword occurs (as h(/ato) and from where it is presumably quoted. The alpha in these plural forms comes from a vocalic n.
[2] From epsilon 14.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic
