  • IPA(key): /aˈvɣo/
  • Hyphenation: αυ‧γό

NounEdit

αυγό (avgón (plural αυγά)

  1. Alternative form of αβγό (avgó)

Usage notesEdit

  • Spelling: In accordance with Georgios Hatzidakis & Manolis Triantafyllidis, Babiniotis considers αβγό the correct spelling: The ‑β‑ in the word originated from phonetic development and there is no justification for writing it with the diphthong ‑αυ‑, as though it has always existed in the word[1]. The αυγό spelling is found in other dictionaries[2]. (Also similar: αφτί & αυτί).
