1 This theory involves the allotment of a time-value to consonants: gres gives the time-value of gr to a, and itself borrows an equivalent time-value from st. This view is more explicitly expressed by the fifth-century grammarian Pompeius (112. 26k), who allots the value of half a time-length to each consonant. Therefore to ă (= one time-length) are added the two half time-lengths represented by gr (see Lindsay, Lat. Language, p. 129).
