Comment: Used for swelling of bodily tissue. Active voice πρήζω can be used transitively 'to cause swelling', e.g. Tου ΄δωσε μια γροθιά και του ΄πρηξε το μάτι. 'He gave a punch and it swelled my eye.' Passive voice as listed in the source form simply means 'to swell', e.g. Tο δόντι της είναι πρησμένο 'her tooth is swollen'.
