Are you learning Koine Greek, the Greek of the New Testament and most other post-classical Greek texts? Whatever your level, use this forum to discuss all things Koine, Biblical or otherwise, including grammar, textbook talk, difficult passages, and more.
Thayer's has some interesting breaks in the spellings of the Greek words:
απο-δι-οριζω / επι-συν-αγω etc...
These can’t be syllabification or stem helpers, what do these breaks represent?

They tell you that it's a prefixed verb, so αποδιοριζω is οριζω with the prefixes απο and δια -- this is important to know because prefixed verbs have some extra complications in their conjugation.
