Quotation

Ἄχος: Ἡ λύπη. Ἐκ τοῦ χῶ τοῦ δηλοῦντος τὸ διαχεῖσθαι, (ἐξ οὗ καὶ τὸ χαίρω) γίνεται ἄχω, παρὰ τὸ μὴ διαχεῖσθαι, ἀλλὰ συνέχεσθαι τὴν ψυχὴν ὑπὸ λύπης· ὅθεν καὶ τὸ χαίρειν εἴρηται παρὰ τὸ διαχεῖσθαι τὴν ψυχὴν ὑπὸ τῆς ἡδονῆς. Ἢ παρὰ τὸ ἔχω, κατὰ ἀντίφρασιν, ὃ οὐ θέλει τὶς ἔχειν. Ἢ χῶ τὸ χωρῶ, χός· μετὰ τοῦ στερητικοῦ, ἄχος, τὸ μὴ χωρούμενον διὰ τὴν λύπην. Ἢ χῶ, τὸ χέω, μετὰ τοῦ στερητικοῦ, ἄχος, τὸ μὴ χεόμενον. Ἢ παρὰ τὸ ἔχω
