Thayer's Expanded Definition

νεοσσός and (so T WH, see νοσσία) νοσσός, νεοσσου, (νέος), a young (creature), young bird: Luke 2:24. The form νοσσός appears in the Vaticanus text of the Sept.; but in the Alexandrian manuscript everywhere νεοσσός; cf. Sturz, De dial. Maced., p. 185f; Lob. ad Phryn. p. 206f; (cf. Winers Grammar, 24). (In Greek writings from Homer down; the Sept. often for בֵּן, of the young of animals, as Leviticus 12:6, 8; Job 38:41.)

STRONGS NT 3502: νοσσός νοσσός, see νεοσσός.
