Headword: Ναί
Adler number: nu,92
Translated headword: yes
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Adverb of affirmation.[1]
It is also used in oaths with a lowered accent, as in ναὶ τὼ θεώ ["by the two goddesses"], that is "by the goddesses."[2]
Greek Original:
Ναί: συγκαταθέσεως ἐπίρρημα. ἔστι καὶ ὁρκωμοτικὸν μετὰ κοιμωμένης ὀξείας, οἷον ναὶ τὼ θεώ, τουτέστι μὰ τὰς θεάς.
Notes:
[1] cf. nu 102. The rest of the entry is a marginal note in ms M, and not in AFV.
[2] These two versions differ not only between dual and plural but between ναί and μά ; see generally mu 1, mu 292, nu 96, nu 97, nu 98, nu 100. For "put to sleep" when an acute accent is changed to grave, see Dickey p. 243.
