Ancient Greek

Etymology

Has been suggested to derive from Proto-Indo-European *h₁engʷ-, with cognates including Latin inguen and Old Norse ökkvinn. However, we would expect a ἐνδ- from such a root, not ἀδ-.

Pronunciation

  • (Classical): IPA: [adɛː́n]
  • (Koine): IPA: [adˈeːn]
  • (Byzantine): IPA: [aðˈin]
