    Cardinal : ἑπτά (heptá)
    Ordinal : ἕβδομος (hébdomos)
    Adverbial : ἑπτάκις (heptákis)

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Hellenic *heptə́, from Proto-Indo-European *septḿ̥. Cognates include Latin septem, Sanskrit सप्तन् (saptán), Old Armenian եաւթն (eawtʿn), and Old English seofon (English seven).

Pronunciation[edit]

 

Mark the vowel length of the ambiguous vowel ά by adding a macron after it if it is long, or a breve if it is short. By default, Module:grc-pronunciation assumes it is short if unmarked.
