λέγω: the stem ρρέ and ῥηθὲν

Post by pvargas » September 3rd, 2017, 7:00 pm

Hello, my dear friends. I have a doubt.

I found the 6th principal part (aorist passive indicative) of λέγω is ἐρρέθην/ἐρρήθην (billmounce.com); so, the stem is ρρέ/ρρή.

So, my question is this: what's happening with the double consonant ρρ in ῥηθὲν (with rough breathing, from Matt. 1:22 NA28, participle neuter).

Best regards!

Paul.

An initial ρ is always aspirated. The doubling is in consequence of the augmentation.
