Verb-stems showing variation between short and long vowels ( cross476) have long vowels in the second perfect (α is thus regularly lengthened). Thus, τήκω (τακ-, τηκ-) melt τέτηκα, κρά_ζω (κραγ-) cry out κέκρα_γα, φαίνω (φαν-) show πέφηνα have appeared (but πέφαγκα have shown), ῥήγνυ_μι (ῥαγ-, ῥηγ-, ῥωγ-, 477 c) break ἔρρωγα.

a. εἴωθα am accustomed ( = σε-σϝωθ-α) has the strong form ω (cp. ἦθος custom, cross123); Hom. ἔθω (Attic ἐθίζω accustom).
