Headword: Ὁτίη τί
Adler number: omicron,733
Translated headword: because why?
Vetting Status: high
Meaning why. The τι [is] superfluous. Aristophanes in Clouds [sc. uses the expression].[1]
See the [sc. comparison of] διότι with ὅτι in the [entry on] διότι .[2]
Greek Original:
Ὁτίη τί: ἀντὶ τοῦ διατί. τὸ δὲ τί περιττόν. Ἀριστοφάνης Νεφέλαις. ζήτει τὴν διότι πρὸς τὸ ὅτι ἐν τῷ διότι.
[1] From a scholion on Aristophanes, Clouds 784, where the headword phrase occurs (web address 1).
[2] See delta 1214. (This addendum is lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFS.) A feminine noun in the accusative seems to be either missing or implicit after the definite article τὴν ; the editio princeps of Demetrius Chalcocondyles (1499) supplied διαφορὰν "difference, distinction."
