Interior elision takes place in forming compound words. Here the apostrophe is not used. Thus, οὐδείς no one from οὐδὲ εἷς, καθοράω look down upon from κατὰ ὁράω, μεθί_ημι let go from μετὰ ἵ_ημι ( cross124).

a. ὁδί_, τουτί_ this are derived from the demonstrative pronouns ὅδε, τοῦτο + the deictic ending ι_ ( cross333 g).

b. Interior elision does not always occur in the formation of compounds. Thus, σκηπτοῦχος sceptre-bearing from σκηπτο οχος (i.e. σοχος). Cp. cross878.

c. On the accent in elision, see cross174.
