EtymologyEdit

The formation is common to other technical terms like δοκίς (dokís, beam) and σανίς (sanís, board, plank) but the origin is still unknown.

PronunciationEdit

 

Mark the vowel length of the ambiguous vowels 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.
