Adler number: pi,2059
Translated headword: cluckings, lip-smackings
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] coaxing-sounds for untrained horses.
Greek Original:
Poppusmata: kolakeiai eis tous adamastous hippous.
Notes:
Likewise or similarly in other lexica; references at Photius pi1091 Theodoridis. The headword is very rare outside lexica (and scholia), but for the concept, and the related word poppusmos, see chiefly Xenophon, On Horsemanship 9.10. The lexica's poppusmata might be generated from the genitive plural in Gregory of Nazianzus, Orations 45 (PG 36.640.16).
cf. generally pi 2058.
Keywords: Christianity; daily life; definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; religion; rhetoric; zoology
