Headword: Οὐκί
Adler number: omicron,896
Translated headword: not
Vetting Status: high
[οὐκί means the same as] οὐχί . Homer writes it with a κ , and not with a χ .[1] For it is shown that, as a result of contractions, smooths turn into roughs, when the [vowel] that follows is aspirated; but when a smooth is placed after, it is not modified.
Greek Original:
Οὐκί: τὸ οὐχί. Ὅμηρος διὰ τοῦ κ γράφει, οὐ διὰ τοῦ χ. δείκνυται γὰρ ἐκ τῶν συναλοιφῶν τὰ μὲν ψιλὰ μεταπίπτοντα εἰς δασέα, ὅταν τὸ ἐπιφερόμενον δασύνηται: ψιλοῦ δὲ ὑποτασσομένου, μὴ μεταπίπτοντα.
cf. eta 117 (n. 4). For οὐχί see e.g. omicron 982, omicron 983.
