EtymologyEdit

From Ancient Greek Στύξ (Stúx).

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

Styx

  1. (Greek mythology, masculine inanimate, feminine) Styx, the river in Hades, over which the souls of the dead are ferried by Charon
    • 1906, Vladislav Kalousek, “Styx”, in Ottův slovník naučný[2], volume XXIV, Praha: J. Otto, page 315:
      V podsvětí pak ze Stygy opět vyvěrá Kókytos.
      The Kokytos issues from the Styx in the Underworld.
  2. (Greek mythology, feminine) Styx, the goddess of the river Styx in Hades
    • 1906, Vladislav Kalousek, “Styx”, in Ottův slovník naučný[3], volume XXIV, Praha: J. Otto, page 315:
      [] děti její stále obklopují trůn Zévův a Styx stala se bohyní božské přísahy.
      [] her children keep surrounding the Zeus's throne and Styx became the goddess of the divine oath.
  3. (astronomy, masculine inanimate) Styx, a moon of Pluto [since 2013]
    • 2015 June 4, “Pluto a jeho měsíce jsou tak trochu splašená mini soustava”, in Česká televize[4]:
      Nix, Hydra a podle přesvědčení vědců i Kerberos a Styx mají navíc spíš oválný než kulatý tvar, což ještě víc přispívá k jejich nepředvídatelným oběžným drahám.
      The shape of Nix, Hydra and, as scientists are convinced, also Kerberos and Styx is more oval than round, which contributes to unpredictibility of their orbits even more.

Usage notesEdit

The grammatical gender of Styx in the sense of the mythological river can be both masculine and feminine, but the feminine seems obsolete. Current grammar manuals suggest only masculine. (The feminine gender was proposed e. g. in a textbook for secondary schools by M. Blažek in 1877.[1]) However, when speaking about the goddess of the river, the feminine gender has to be used.
