A pleonasm is a redundancy, using superfluous words.
Let's play with a larger ball.
pleivwn is masculine and feminine, plei:on is neuter. It is a 3-3 adjective. The genitive of both is pleivonoV. Notice the ablaut in the final stem vowel. See the Appendix for its full declension pattern, page 351. If you are following Track Two, just memorize this word for now; its forms will be explained in chapter 10.
Because of the word's meaning, it will often be followed by a word in the genitive. You can use the key word "than" with the word in the genitive.
Either this word does not occur in the New Testament, or it occurs too frequently to show.
