Headword: Μεμακυῖα
Adler number: mu,551
Translated headword: bleating
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] desiring.
Greek Original:
Μεμακυῖα: προθυμουμένη.
The headword is a participle, feminine nominative singular, of the perfect μέμηκα , but is here glossed as if from μέμονα ; see mu 554 s.v. μεμαυῖα (which has surely contaminated the present entry), and cf. mu 552, mu 571. Hesychius mu777 has appropriate glossing, and see also the scholia on the plural μεμακυῖαι in Homer, Iliad 4.135.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; epic; zoology
