EtymologyEdit

Unknown; possibly Pre-Greek.

PronunciationEdit

 

NounEdit

θρῐ́ξ (thríxf (genitive τρῐχός); third declension

  1. hair

InflectionEdit

The declension unusually shows the nominative singular's initial consonant being aspirated while the other forms lack it due to Grassmann's law occurring. The nominative singular and dative plural retained their initial aspiration due to the root χ losing its aspiration before the ending starting with -ς.
