This article is inaccurate. Proskynesis (or the infinitive, proskynein) means "to fall at/before the knees". See the applicable page in Woodhouse, which happens to include both "kiss" and "knee". http://artflx.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/efts/dicos/woodhouse_test.pl?keyword=^Kiss,%20subs.
Also, any discussion of the proskynesis which fails to mention the Byzantine Empire (after Constantine), Justinian or Otto Treitinger is clearly deficient.
I've put the pronunciation into IPA. I'm not sure if it's correct (it looks correct to me, but can someone else have a look at it, just to doublecheck?) The previous example was phonetic 'pross-kin-ee-sis', so I've put it into proper IPA, taken from similar related words on wiktionary. Also, I'm not sure if the template (English pronunciation: //) is correct. Help? magentafeelings (talk) 23:19, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
Noticed that the following had been inserted into the article by 22.214.171.124, thought I should move it to the talk page.
"Check this. I believe the etymology you are presenting is incorrect. Check the root, KYNOS, ancient word for DOG. It's to assume the posture of a dog."
