Headword: Νεωστί
Adler number: nu,239
Translated headword: newly, recently
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] latterly.[1]
Just as out of the [genitive plural] μεγάλων ["of big ones"] [comes the adverb] μεγάλως ["grandly"] and in Attic μεγαλωστί ["far and wide"],[2] so [there is the sequence] νέων ["of new ones"], νέως ["newly"], νεωστί . [3] And οὕτω τι ["somewhat like that"] is similar, even though it is accented recessively.[4]
Greek Original:
Νεωστί: προσφάτως. ὥσπερ ἐκ τοῦ μεγάλων μεγάλως καὶ Ἀττικῶς μεγαλωστί, οὕτω νέων, νέως, νεωστί. καὶ ἔστιν ὅμοιον τὸ οὕτω τι: εἰ καὶ βαρύνεται ἐκεῖνο.
[1] Similar glossing in other lexica, e.g. Hesychius nu428.
[2] See LSJ s.v.; the adjective occurs in Homer and Sappho, and "Attic" should be understood in its Byzantine sense of "classical".
[3] Μεγαλωστί and νεωστί are routinely listed together as illustrations of the -τ[ε]ί suffix, starting with Apollonius Dyscolus, On Adverbs p. 162 Schneider, citing Tryphon before him. Apollonius identified νεωστί , rather than μεγαλωστί , as "Attic".
[4] More importantly, οὕτω τι are two words, and the -τί suffix of νεωστί is unrelated to τι "something".
