I was having a mysql error appear, complaining about a funny character in the above post, so I have uploaded it as an image.

ἐν-δε-δυ-μέν-ον [preposition "in" - reduplication - lexical-root "cover oneself / lost from sight" - middle participle marker - number-case ending

The reduplication (deliberate and meaningful stutter) comes between the preposition and the lexical-root.

You may find benefit from a look in the index of your grammar to find the section explaining "augment".

Thanks Stephen. I did check the textbook we are using and it wasn't clear to me (for this particular case), hence the question.

I have looked in the local christian bookshop for alternative textbooks, and they don't have much, I am going to have to order something on amazon, which I have an aversion to because the postage costs so much and usually takes several months to deliver.
