Revelation 21:5

I’m translating Rev 21:5 and the word καθήμενος is giving me some trouble. The parsing code for this word is (participle.present middle.nominative singular masculine). I would form this word as follows:

καθη + ο + μενο + ς

So my question is: why doesn’t the η + ο contract to ω?

thank-you for your help! Statistics: Posted by GlennDean — April 3rd, 2012, 9:01 pm
