Headword: Νεογιλλόν
Adler number: nu,182
Translated headword: young
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] new-born.[1]
From the [phrase] νέον γίνεσθαι ["to have been recently born"] [comes] νεογίνον . And as πνεύμων ["lung"] [is]πλεύμων in Attic[2] -- also νίτρον [is] λίτρον [3] -- so νεογινόν [gives] νεογιλόν .
Greek Original:
Νεογιλλόν: νεογέννητον. παρὰ τὸ νέον γίνεσθαι, νεογινόν. καὶ ὡς πνεύμων, πλεύμων Ἀττικῶς, καὶ νίτρον, λίτρον, οὕτω νεογινόν, νεογιλόν.
On the etymology and spelling of νεογιλλός or νεογιλός , see LSJ s.v. (web address 1). In the supplementary paragraph here the lexicographer proposes a rule for an alternation between n and l, but bases it on two atypical examples.
[1] Likewise in Photius (nu126 Theodoridis) and elsewhere. The headword, accusative singular, is perhaps extracted from Theocritus, Idylls 17.58.
[2] cf. pi 1826.
[3] cf. nu 435, LSJ s.v. νίτρον .
