Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Late Hellenistic, or medieval 6th century attested oblique cases (e.g. genitive δικηγόρου (dikēgórou), dative, δικηγόρῳ (dikēgórōi)), both suitable for a noun in -ήγορος or -ηγόρος. The word was lemmatized by Eustathius and at Suda as δικηγόρος (dikēgóros, advocate). From the ancient δίκη (díkē) + -ήγορος (-ḗgoros) from ἀγορεύω (agoreúō) with ectasis of <α> to <η> in composition (like κατήγορος (katḗgoros, accuser)), but with stress shift like δημηγόρος (dēmēgóros, orator, speaker). Diccionario Español[1] correctly lemmatizes δικηγόρος, unlike LSJ[2] which lemmatizes δικήγορος.[3][4]
