ἀλέγω

ἀλέγω
Grammatical information: v.
Meaning: `have care, mind, heed' (Il.).
Other forms: pres. only; mostly with negation.
Compounds: δυσ-ηλεγής orig. `who does not care, pityless', sec. associated with ἄλγος (Hom.); ἀν-ηλεγής id (Q. S.), to be read for Hom. τανηλεγής (Bechtel Herm. 39, 155f., Leumann Hom. Wörter 45; cf. ἀνηλεγές· ἀφρόντιστον; prob. for older *νηλεγης \< *n̥-h₂leg-.
Origin: IE [Indo-European] [00] *h₂leg- `care, mind'
Etymology: No etym., but the structure of the word suggests IE origin, as indicated. Identity with ἄλγος is semant. improbable. De Lamberterie (EG 2, 150) defends the connection with λέγω; unacceptable since the laryngeal theory.
