Second Aorist Imperative.—On θέ-ς, δό-ς, ἕ-ς, see cross466. 1. b. These verbs show the weak form of the stem (θέ-τω, θέ-ντων). ἵστημι and σβέννυ_μι have -θι in στῆ-θι, σβῆ-θι. For στῆ-θι the poets may use -στα_ in composition, as ἀπόστα_ stand off.

a. The middle adds -σο, which loses its ς after a short vowel, as in θοῦ for θέ-σο, δοῦ for δό-σο, πρίω (and poet. πρία-σο). ς is not dropped after a long vowel (ὄνησο). Cp. cross465 b, N. 2.

-- 210 --

b. In composition περίθες, ἀπόδος, παράστηθι, ἐνθοῦ, προδοῦ; but κατάθου, περιδου, περίδοσθε ( cross426 b-c).

c. For the 3 pl. θέτωσαν, δότωσαν, ἕσθωσαν, see cross466. 2. b.
