Greek display:    

Headword: Οὖς
Adler number: omicron,958
Translated headword: ear
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] an auricle.
Greek Original:
Οὖς: τὸ ὠτίον.
Notes:
Entry lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV.
Here the glossing word -- formally a diminutive, but see LSJ s.v. -- is rarer in classical Greek than the headword. However, it has replaced οὖς in modern Greek: in the plural τὰ ὠτία > τα οὐτία > taftia, whence the singular τ' αὐτί (t'afti).
See also omega 264.
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology
