Abstract: This paper explores the verb ΒΑΛΛΩ and three morphologically complex verbs, which have prepositional prefixes and derive from it. More specifically, it compares sense ordering in the Dictionary of Modern Greek Language and the Dictionary of Modern Greek Koine with sense frequencies in the Hellenic National Corpus./L//L/What emerges from this study is that language in use supplies further semantic nuances not covered by the dictionary entries (e.g., the negative prosody of ΣΥΜΒΑΛΛΩ [cf. “to contribute”]). Additionally, this research suggests that dictionary senses are ordered differently, when corpus evidence is taken into consideration.
