—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)

Both are prolonged forms of ῥήκω [[rheko]] (which appears only in certain forms, and is itself probably a strengthened form of ἄγνυμι [[agnumi]] (see in G2608)); to "break", "wreck" or "crack", that is, (especially) to sunder (by separation of the parts; G2608 being its intensive (with the preposition in compounds), and G2352 a shattering to minute fragments; but not a reduction to the constituent particles, like G3089) or disrupt, lacerate; by implication to convulse (with spasms); figuratively to give vent to joyful emotions:—break (forth), burst, rend, tear.
