Abbott-Smith Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament

Α , α , ἄλφα

(q.v.), τό , indecl., alpha,

the first letter of the Greek alphabet. As a numeral, = 1, α , = 1000.

As a prefix, it appears to have at least two and perhaps three distinct senses:

1. - (before a vowel, ἀν -) negative, as in -γιωστος , -δικος .

2. -, - copulative, indicating community and fellowship, as in -πλοῦς , -κολουθέω , -δελφός .

3. An intensive force (LS, s. a), as in -τενίζω is sometimes assumed (but v. Boisacq, s.v.).

Ἄλφα , τό , indecl. (see A), Alpha: Revelation 1:8; Revelation 21:6; Revelation 22:13 (v. Swete, in 11.).†
