Origin of hypodiastole

From Latin hypodiastolē, from Ancient Greek ὑποδιαστολή (hypodiastolḗ), from the combining form of Ancient Greek ὑπό (hypó) + Ancient Greek διαστολή (diastolē, “drawing asunder, separation, distinction”), from Ancient Greek διαστέλλειν (diastéllō, “put asunder, separate”), from the combining form of Ancient Greek διά (diá, “through, during”) + στέλλειν (stellein, “put in order, send for”).
