Have an entry request? Add it to the list – but please:

  • Think twice before adding long lists of words as they may be ignored.
  • If possible provide context, usage, field of relevance, etc.
  • Check the Wiktionary:Criteria for inclusion if you are unsure if it belongs in the dictionary.
  • If the entry already exists, but seems incomplete or incorrect, do not add it here; add a request template to the entry itself to ask someone to fix the problem, e.g. {{rfp}} or {{rfe}} for pronunciation or etymology respectively.
    — Note also that such requests, like the information requested, belong on the base form of a word, not on inflected forms.

Please remove entries from this list once they have been written (i.e. the link is “live”, shown in blue, and has a section for the correct language)

There are a few things you can do to help:

  • Add glosses or brief definitions.
  • Add the part of speech, preferably using a standardized template.
  • If you know what a word means, consider creating the entry yourself instead of using this request page.
  • Please indicate the gender(s) .
  • If you see inflected forms (plurals, past tenses, superlatives, etc.) indicate the base form (singular, infinitive, absolute, etc.) of the requested term and the type of inflection used in the request.
  • For words which are listed here only in their romanized form, please add the correct form in Greek script.
  • Don’t delete words just because you don’t know them – it may be that they are used only in certain contexts or are archaic or obsolete.
  • Don’t simply replace words with what you believe is the correct form. The form here may be rare or regional. Instead add the standard form and comment that the requested form seems to be an error in your experience.

ρ, Ρ[edit]

  • (Rh) — majuscule rho with a spiritus asper
  • (rh) — minuscule rho with a spiritus asper
  • Ρ̓ (R) — majuscule rho with a spiritus lenis. LSJ, or more precisely printed Liddell & Scott (A Greek-English Lexicon, 4th ed., 1855, p. 1245, cp. p. 1248 IA): "Ρ, ρ [...] C. if ρ begins a word, it takes the rough breathing, except only in Ῥάρος and Ρ̓άριος: though indeed in Aeol. ρ was never aspirated". Cp. Ρ̓ᾶρος, Ρ̓άριος below. Note: "Ρ̓" maybe isn't the correct character, but unicode might miss this
  • (r) — minuscule rho with a spiritus lenis
  • ῥαθυμία (rhathumía), ῥᾳθυμία (rhāithumía) = easiness of temper, (a) taking things easily
  • Ρ̓ᾶρος (Râros), Ρ̓άριος (Rários) — both in printed LS, and also at perseus: LSJ, A Greek-English Lexicon & LS, An Intermediate Greek-English Lexicon have "Ρ̓ᾶρος" or "*)ra=ros" (* stands for majuscule and ) for spiritus lenis).
  • Ῥαφαήλ (Rhaphaḗl) — Raphael, in Bible, Tob. 12, 15. The form with spiritus asper can be found in older printed books (like 17th-19th century, e.g. GB from 1725 although with other phi and different accent), though it could also be Modern Greek.
    (BTW: Compared with Latin and several other languages' Raphael, possible also with a Hebrew term, and with ᾿Ρ, Ρ̓ᾶρος, Ρ̓άριος, the form *Ρ̓αφαήλ (Raphaḗl) might seem more fitting.)
  • ῥῆσις (rhêsis, utterance”, “speech)
  • -ρραφία (-rrhaphía) > English -rrhaphy
  • ῥύτωρ (rhútōr). Mangêzd (talk)
