Trachilos grece collum.


Apparatus:

Trachillos AC e | Trachilos B f


Translation:

Trachillos is Greek for Latin collum {"neck"}.


Commentary:

Greek τράχηλος /trákhēlos/ means "neck, throat".

The word shows the effect of the itacist sound change η > ι {/ē/ > /i/}, resulting in /trákhilos/, the pronunciation Simon is portraying.
