Text based on: Liddell H. G., Scott R. An Intermediate Greek-English Lexicon. Founded upon the 7th ed. of Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon. Oxford: Clarendon Press. 1889. It would be better to find Oxford Clarendon edition

Format: original

ΔΈ, but: conjunctive Particle, with adversative force: it commonly answers to μέν, and may often be rendered by while, whereas, on the other hand, v. μέν:—but μέν is often omitted, δέ being used merely to pass on from one thing to another; ὣς Ἀχιλεὺς θάμβησεν, θάμβησαν δὲ καὶ ἄλλοι Il.; etc.; κινεῖ κραδίην κινεῖ δὲ χόλον Eur.

II. δέ is often redundant,

1. to introduce the apodosis, where it may be rendered by then, yet, εἰ δέ κε μὴ δώωσιν, ἐγὼ δέ κεν αὐτὸς ἕλωμαι if they will not give it, then I will take it, Il.; so at in Lat., si tu oblitus es, at Dii meminerint Catull.

2. t o resume after interruption caused by a parenthesis, where it may be rendered by I say, now, so then, Hdt.

B. POSITION of δέ: properly second, being often put between the Art. and Subst., the Prep. and case.
