Crasis is the grammatical term where two words are joined, by contracting the vowel sound at the end of a word into the vowel sound of the beginning of the next word.

This occurs uncommonly in Koine Greek. Some of the more common examples in the New Testament are

  • καγω
  • κακεινος
  • καν
  • κακει

καγω

Sometimes και (and) plus εγω (I) are joined into a single word: καγω (and I). This occurs 76 times in the New Testament.

κακεινος

Sometimes και plus εκεινος are joined into a single word: κακεινος (and that or and he). This occurs 22 times in the New Testament.

καν

Sometimes και plus αν are joined into a single word: καν (and). This occurs 17 times in the New Testament.

κακει

Sometimes και plus εκει are joined into a single word: κακει (and there). This occurs 10 times in the New Testament.
