COMPLEX SENTENCES/ Ὥς Clauses

632. Ὡς as, how, and ὥς thus, so, are adverbs of manner from ὅς (339); they differ only in accent, ὥς corresponding to the older demonstrative form of ὅς, and ὡς to the relative form; sometimes ὡς itself is accented (18, 21 c).
The uses of ὡς as a subordinating conjunction fall under two classes:

  1. Corresponding to those of ὅς and other relative pronouns
  2. Showing farther developments in special directions
