βάλλω

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Proto-Indo-European *gʷl̥-ne-h₁-, nasal-infix from *gʷelH- (to hit by throwing). Cognates are uncertain, but compare Sanskrit उद्गूर्ण (ud-gūrṇa) and Old Irish at·baill (dies).

Sihler, Andrew L. (1995) New Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latin, Oxford, New York: Oxford University Press, →ISBN p. 519 argues for a N nasal progressive aspect marker, but Curtius, Georg (1880) The Greek Verb: Its Structure and Development.[1], London: J. Murray, pages “The I Class”, p. 201-227 sections 292-330 and Smyth, Herbert Weir (1920) , “Part II: Inflection”, in A Greek grammar for colleges, Cambridge: American Book Company, § 517 argue for a *y progressive aspect marker.
