Greek[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

  • (obsolete/hypercorrect) ό⸒τι (ó⸒ti) (i.e. with the hypodiastole Unicode character, rather than a comma)
  • (dated) ο τι (o ti)
  • (misspelling) ότι (óti)

Etymology[edit]

From a reconsideration of ὅ τι (hó ti) as a single word, while retaining the hypodiastole—an otherwise outdated form of the Greek comma used as a disambiguating interpunct symbol—in order to differentiate this term from ότι (óti).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈoti/
  • Hyphenation: ό‧τι
  • Homophone: ότι (óti)
