Headword: Μεγαλορήμονος
Adler number: mu,370
Translated headword: of someone grandiloquent
Vetting Status: high
and [sc. also attested is] μεγαλορημοσύνη ["grandiloquence"], [meaning] speaking grandly.
Greek Original:
Μεγαλορήμονος: καὶ Μεγαλορημοσύνη, μεγαληγορία.
The primary headword, in the genitive case, is clearly quoted from somewhere, but the known instances of μεγαλορρήμονος outside lexica and grammars are not promising: it occurs in John Damascene, Sacra Parallela PG 95.1285 (as a title), and in Sophronius of Jerusalem, Miracles of SS Cyrus and John 9 line 60 Fernández Marcos.
The related noun μεγαλορημοσύνη is also mentioned, unglossed, in mu 376 with the classical spelling μεγαλορρημοσύνη (the Suda is generally indifferent to single and double consonants). It is first recorded in 1 Samuel 2:3 and Odes 3:3 LXX. Hesychius mu475 defines it instead as μεγάλα, λαλόνων (of those uttering grandly?).
