Talk:ἄνθρωπος

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I put in a conjugation table, but couldn't be sure what the accentation was on some forms, so I left them without, and simply assumed a standard second declension. And I couldn't find a plural vocative form (admittedly, I don't know if such a thing actually exists). Cerealkiller13 22:25, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

ἄνθρωπος is indeed a standard second declension noun. For the paradigm, the plural vocative always is identical to the plural nominative. Medellia 08:07, 19 October 2006 (UTC)

Why do we bother to mention Beekes theory on ἄνθρωπος when we have several Greek words having the -ὤψ component e.g. σκυδρός + ὤψ = σκυθρωπός, αρρέν + ὤψ = αρρενωπός and so on? Fkitselis 20:33, 27 September 2011 (UTC)


Maybe is it interesting to notice that Sanskrit has andhra = man of a low caste, which seems to derive from the same PIE root cited in the article, that is *n̥dʰreh₃kʷó- ‎(“that which is below”).

अन्ध्र andhra m. man of a low caste
