Headword: Πᾶς
Adler number: pi,745
Translated headword: all
Vetting Status: high
[Πᾶς ] has a circumflex accent; [this is] because it was thought to be a participle, like στάς ["taking a stand"], βάς ["taking a step"]. So in order to avoid the suspicion [sc. of being a participle], it received a circumflex accent.
Greek Original:
Πᾶς: περισπᾶται: διότι ἐνομίζετο εἶναι μετοχή, ὡς στάς, βάς. ἵνα οὖν φύγῃ τὴν ὑπόνοιαν, περιεσπάσθη.
Despite the suggestion in Adler that there is something comparable with the first sentence here in the grammarian Theodosius, this material seems in fact to be unparalleled. See merely Choeroboscus' citation of στάς and βάς as oxytone participles.
