EtymologyEdit

According to Beekes, it can be hardly related to σπάρτον (spárton, rope), as the variation points to a Pre-Greek origin.

PronunciationEdit

 

Mark the vowel length of the ambiguous vowels υ and ί by adding a macron after each one if it is long, or a breve if it is short. By default, Module:grc-pronunciation assumes it is short if unmarked.
