In the Hymn to Demeter (13), I came across this phrase: kw=dist' o)dmh=. I'm guessing that kw=dist' reflects the joining of kai/ and h(/dista; but where does the omega come from? Is there another word involved?
without even looking at the meaning, the form [face=SPIonic]kw=dist'[/face]
doesn't make sense to me unless i'm having a mental blank which is of course v possible
the accent breaks the law of limitation; the only forms i can think of which break that law are some in the attic 2nd decl e.g. [face=SPIonic]i(/lewj[/face]
shouldn't there be a coronis as well, i.e. the breathing mark with a different name where crasis occurs, if it's kai/ + a vowel-initial word?
