Some loose ends in the analysis of the forms ἔθηκε(ν) and θῆκε(ν) in the Iliad: the Exceptions, the Compounds, the Link with Mycenaean and the Origin of the Augment

Filip de Decker


In the final part of the investigation into the use of the (un)augmented 3rd singular forms ἔθηκε(ν) and θῆκε(ν) in the Iliad, I focus on some loose ends, such as the enjambments, the compound forms, the formulaic nature of the epic language, the subordinate and negative sentences, and on some thornier issues such as the exceptions to the rules and the Mycenaean te ke and do ke and what this can tell us about the original meaning and origin of the augment.1

The acknowledgements are the same as in De Decker (2020a). 

Słowa kluczowe: epic Greek, Mycenaean, augment, injunctive, historical Greek syntax
