The Languages of Aristophanes

Aspects of Linguistic Variation in Classical Attic Greek

Andreas Willi

Oxford Classical Monographs

The play with linguistic styles constitutes an important ingredient of Aristophanic humour. Andreas Willi uses the stylistic diversity as a source to reconstruct the 'real' styles upon which Aristophanes based his text. Most of these 'real' styles would otherwise be lost because they are not represented in serious literature.
