STRONGS NT 1: ?, ?, ????

?, ?, ????, ??, the first letter of the Greek alphabet, opening the series which the letter ? closes. Hence, the expression ??? ???? ?? ? [L T Tr WH ????] ??? ?? ? [? L WH],Revelation 1:8,11Rec., which is explained by the appended words ? ???? ??? ?? ?????,Revelation 21:6, and by the further addition ? ?????? ??? ? ???????,Revelation 22:13. On the meaning of the phrase cf.Revelation 11:17;Isaiah 41:4;Isaiah 44:6;Isaiah 48:12; [especially B. D. American edition, p. 73].
?, when prefixed to words as an inseparable syllable, is:
1. privative (??????????), like the Latin in-, the English un-, giving a negative sense to the word to which it is prefixed, as ??????; or signifying what is contrary to it, as ??????, ??????; before vowels generally ??-, as in ????????.
2. copulative (???????????), akin to the particle ??? [cf. Curtius, § 598], indicating community and fellowship, as in ???????, ?????????. Hence, it is:
3. intensive (??????????), strengthening the force of terms, like the Latin con in composition; as ??????? from ?????? [yet cf. Winers Grammar, 100 (95)]. This use, however, is doubted or denied now by many [e. g.Lob.Path. Element. i. 34f). Cf. Kühner, i. 741, § 339 Anm. 5; [Jelf, § 342 ?.];Bttm.Gram. § 120 Anm. 11; [Donaldson, Gram., p. 334; New Crat. §§ 185, 213; Liddell and Scott, under the word].
