  Hello everyone,

Can anyone explain what the noun διασωθείς - survivor - would be in the feminine? Maybe it would still be διασωθείς? I cannot find this word in my dictionary! And I am not sure if this is another special type of noun already mentioned in the course?

Thank you!!

  The feminine is η διασωθείσα. The genitive is διασωθείσας, or in formal (katharevousa) writing διασωθείσης.

See "FYI: old aorist passive participles" in Discussion Forum 96 for more about nouns formed from the ancient aorist passive participle form.
