The so-called syncopated nouns of Attic Greek, “μήτηρ, πατήρ, θυγάτηρ, ἀνήρ”, etc., are sometimes syncopated in epic, sometimes not. E. g. “θύγατρα” (A 13), “θυ_γατέρα” (E 371). “ἄνδρας” (B 362), “α?νέρας” (A 262).

A few selected paradigms are added for illustration (§ § 86-95).1

1 The bracketed cases of these particular words do not actually occur in Homer, but other similarly inflected words may have them.
