I have seen discussions of this sort of thing in the older grammars on NT
Greek, under word formation. From the stand point of lexical semantics this
kind of thinking looks somewhat bizarre. I have generally ignored it,
assuming it was a hangover from 19th century philology.
Thanks for the clarification, very helpful.
