σιωπή

See also: σιωπῇ

Ancient GreekEdit

EtymologyEdit

Probably of non-Indo-European (Pre-Greek substrate) origin, due to the alternating forms σιωπ- and σωπ-. Superficially resembling σιγή (sigḗ, silence), but probably not related. Also likely not related to Proto-Germanic *swībaną (to suspend, stop, finish).[1][2]
