Demonstrative ὥς (also accented ὡς, ὧς) thus, so is originally an ablative from the demonstrative stem ὁ- (from σο-), from which come the article and ὅς he in καὶ ὅς, ἦ δ' ὅς ( cross1113). For the , see cross341. Cp. also ὧ-δε thus.

So καὶ ὥς even so, nevertheless, οὐδ' (μηδ') ὥς not even thus, in no wise, ὡς αὔτως (ὡσαύτως) in the same way, just so (ablative of ὁ αὐτός). ὡς ἑτέρως (lit. thus otherwise, in that other way) quite otherwise and ὡς ἀληθῶς (lit. thus truly) in very truth also probably belong here.

a. In some cases it is uncertain whether ὡς is demonstrative or relative; e.g. ὡς in exclamatory clauses. Cp. cross2998, cross3001.
