Primitive verbs showing in their stems a variation between a short and long vowel have, in the second aorist passive, the short vowel. Thus τήκω (τακ-, τηκ-) melt ἐτάκην, ῥήγνυ_μι (ῥαγ-, ῥηγ-, ῥωγ-) break ἐρράγην.

a. But πλήττω (πλαγ-, πληγ-) strike has ἐπλάγην only in composition, as ἐξεπλάγην; otherwise ἐπλήγην.
