Quick question. In the Woodhouse dictionary, the accent on the word number is on the antepenult ([face=SPIonic]a)/riqmoj[/face]); however, in the Little LS, the accent is on the ultima. Which one is correct? Are they both correct?
The LSJ (on Perseus) and the Pocket Oxford Classical Greek Dictionary both have it accented on the ultima.
As you've probably noticed, [face=SPIonic]a)riqmoj[/face] technically could have an accent on the antepenult since it has a short ultima. If we knew the word to have recessive accent, we indeed would have expected an accent on the antepenult - but as you know, it's a noun, and nouns don't necessarily have recessive accents...
However - I do recall my tutor telling me of a Greek dialect (Aeolic, I think), in which all words have recessive accent.
