Insertion of tau.—In a few words τ is inserted before the suffixes μο, μα, μη, μην. Thus, ἐφ-ε-τ-μή command (ἐφί_ημι, root ἑ, ἡ), λαῖ-τ-μα depth of the sea, ἀϋ-τ-μή and ἀϋ-τ-μήν breath (ἄημι blow). In ἐρετ-μό-ν oar the τ may be part of the verb-stem (ἐρέσσω, cross515), and have spread thence to the other words.
