Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1859 edition. Excerpt: ...0. 395.--Btijaei... avaPnvai. Larch, says, " Bea and tBea are frequently redundant;"--a remark quite unphilosophic. Cooley adds, "iBeeiv is here used for fieWeiv;"--which is hardly less so. More properly it is simply an auxiliary = will, which is etymologically =i Poi-ofiai = vol-o. The auxiliary system of forming the tenses, less used by the classic authors, must still have been in common colloquial use; for when learning perished from among them, and classic models ceased to influence, the people transmitted to modern Greece as a household inheritance, txa and Bia and iBea as essential auxiliary parts of the verb. Thus the Romaic makes a pluperfect by the help of dxov or e?X ana a future and conditional by the help of the present of fle'Atti and the impf. and perf. of iSfa, 14. &Wo... fiiyurros. In such comparative sentences, the full construction would have the predicate expressed in both clauses, which however all languages agree to dispense with once. We commonly make the ellipsis in the second member; the Greek, as here, in the first. 10. rav rivi, sc. Sovhav. 110.--1. iirl requires the acc. Some Mss. have Povk6ov. The best Edd. agree in Povk6ccv, to which we must supply rivi, or Tovtov. 8. iritt)sc-t toj, most convenient or Jit for his purpose. The reading has been much disputed. i. iavrou; i. e. Ilarpagus. 6. 2ira/-6. According to Le Fevre (or Faber) as quoted by L. the Hyreanians, a people governed by the Persians, still eall a dog Spac. The Russians say Sobaka or Sabac for the same thing. 1. iiri&peai.. oibplav is tautological, but admitted to classic rank. Plains lying at the foot of the mountains; sub radicibus montium. 8.
