Headword: Νεᾶνις
Adler number: nu,112
Translated headword: young woman
Vetting Status: high
[νεᾶνις , genitive] νεάνιδος . [Formed] out of the [adjective] νέος ["new"], [whence] νεάν ; as ἄλκιμος "valiant" [gives] ἀλκιμάν and [from it] ἀλκμάν .
Greek Original:
Νεᾶνις, νεάνιδος. ἐκ τοῦ νέος, νεάν: ὡς ἄλκιμος, ἀλκιμὰν καὶ ἀλκμάν.
The last word cited is a proper name: see alpha 1289. As for νεάν (so accented) and ἀλκιμάν , they seem to be unattested (maybe grammarians' hypothetical forms).
Keywords: biography; dialects, grammar, and etymology; poetry
