Lesson VI: ἀγλαὰ ἄποινα

Postby Talmid » Wed Aug 08, 2007 5:57 pm

When looking at section 26, exercise #1, I ran across this oddity:

ἀγλαὰ ἄποινα

I thought to myself: "Well, I bet I'll never see these two words juxtaposed in Homer without an elision."

Does anyone else agree? Are there any examples contrary to my suspicion?

The metrical effects of digamma were already artificial when Iliad assumed its present form (ignoring for the moment the question of the treatment the text received at the hands of the Athenians). It probably ceased being pronounced a few generations before Homer did his thing. I don't pronounce it, but I don't doubt some people would argue fiercely in favor of pronouncing it.
