κίνδυνος

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

The connection with κίνδαξ (kíndax, quick, nimble), ὀνοκίνδιος (onokíndios, donkey-driver) is formally attractive. For the semantics, Prellwitz and Vendryes compare Latin sollicitus (agitated, disturbed), which is from sollus (whole, entire) + cieō (move, stir, shake). Attempts at an Indo-European etymology should be given up. The Pre-Greek character is clear in view of the ending -ῡν-.
