Headword: Καυλῶ
Adler number: kappa,1135
Translated headword: I form a shoot, I form a stalk
Vetting Status: high
[I form a shoot/stalk], [future] I will form a shoot/stalk.[1]
[sc. Also attested is] ἐκκεκαυληκότα ["having put out a shoot/stalk"]:[2] "all of the [parts of the] vegetables that have put out a shoot/stalk".[3]
Greek Original:
Καυλῶ: καυλήσω. Ἐκκεκαυληκότα: τῶν λαχάνων πάντα ἐκκεκαυληκότα.
[1] The verb καυλέω is cited in its present and future tense. The simple verb is attested only in this passage (LSJ s.v.), and the lexicographer is using it to introduce the classical verb ἐκκαυλέω . (The verb is also used to form προσκαυλέω "I shoot out like a stalk", in Hippocrates, διακαυλέω "I run to stalk" in Theophrastus, and ἐγκαυλέω "I am in stalk" in Aristotle.)
[2] The compound verb ἐκκαυλέω "I run to stalk, I put forth a shoot/stalk" (LSJ s.v.: web address 1) appears twice in [Aristotle], Problemata 924b, and 11 times in Theophrastus (6 in Enquiry into Plants, 5 in On The Causes of Plants). See further, next note.
[3] The perfect active participle of ἐκκαυλέω is attested only in lexicographers (Pollux, Apollonius, Apion, Hesychius), and the passage cited is Suda's own, in omicron 598, glossing ὄρμενα . The gloss may be derived from Pollux 6.54.4: καὶ πᾶν δὲ τὸ ὑπερεξηνθηκός, ὅπερ ἐκκεκαυληκὸς, ὄρμενον ὠνόμαζον "and anything over-blooming --- which they call 'having put out a shoot', they used to call ὄρμενον ".
