A controversial interpretation of the didou form : the opinions of contemporary linguists and the forms of the second person singular of imperativi praesentis medii - passivi of the verb didomi as found in the poetry of ancient Greece of archaic and classical period
The aim of this article is to analyse the d…dou form, which is regarded by two contemporary
scholars to be the poetic form of present imperative middle and passive. The paper presents opinions
of Herodian, an ancient grammarian, as well as those of modern linguists researching the behaviour
of intervocalic sigma in ‑so
suffix of present imperative middle and passive. The critical analysis of
those opinions has been contrasted with the forms present in the poetry of archaic and classical period.
