Headword: Λιπαρές
Adler number: lambda,578
Translated headword: obstinate
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning something] constant. [Formed] out of lian ["very"] [+] pareinai ["to be present"].[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "for if any one of us concedes to these in even the slightest, they will not lack for obstinate handiwork."[2] That is, for daring.[3] Or, the women will not keep away from constant work.[4]
Greek Original:
Λιπαρές: τὸ προσεχές. ἐκ τοῦ λίαν παρεῖναι. Ἀριστοφάνης: εἰ γὰρ ἐνδώσει τις ἡμῶν ταῖσδε κἂν σμικρὰν λαβήν, οὐδὲν ἐλλείψουσιν αὗται λιπαρᾶς χειρουργίας. τουτέστι τόλμης. ἢ οὐκ ἀφέξονται προσεχοῦς ἔργου αἱ γυναῖκες.
Notes:
[1] Just-So etymology given in the scholia to Aristophanes, Lysistrata 673. The form is cited in the neuter singular (of lambda 583) there too, to make the etymology work better.
[2] Aristophanes, Lysistrata 673-675 (web address 1).
[3] Interpretation also given at chi 266.
[4] Again from the scholia.
