Headword: Ὀδύρω: Ὀδύρωμαι
Adler number: omicron,59
Translated headword: I bewail, I lament
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[sc. is attested];[1] but [present middle subjunctive] ὀδύρωμαι [is found] in place of future ὀδοροῦμαι .
And Libanius [writes]: "but now the ash in silence I would bewail".[2]
Greek Original:
Ὀδύρω: Ὀδύρωμαι δὲ ἀντὶ τοῦ ὀδυροῦμαι μέλλοντος. καὶ ὁ Λιβάνιος. νυνὶ δὲ τὴν κόνιν σιγῇ ὀδύρωμαι.
Notes:
[1] Only in lexica in grammars, in this active voice; the norm is middle ὀδύρομαι (omicron 60).
[2] Adler declares the passage unidentifiable, but a TLG search reveals it to be Orations 61.1, which actually has δακρύσω ["I will cry for"].
Keywords: dialects, grammar, and etymology; rhetoric
