The Languages of Aristophanes: Aspects of Linguistic Variation in Classical Attic Greek

The Languages of Aristophanes: Aspects of Linguistic Variation in Classical Attic Greek

Andreas Willi
4.5/5 (2 ratings)
By examining linguistic variation in Aristophanic comedy, Andreas Willi opens up a new perspective on intra-dialectal diversity in Classical Attic Greek. A representative range of registers, technical languages, sociolects, and idiolects is described and analyzed. Stylistic and statistical observations are combined and supplemented by typological comparisons with material drawn from sociolinguistic research on modern languages. The resulting portrayal of the Attic dialect deepens our understanding of various socio-cultural phenomena reflected in Aristophanes' work.
