Abstract:

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 (comic) idiolects is described and
analysed. 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, such as the
spread of 'sophistic' culture, the re-evaluation of gender roles, and
the status of foreigners in Athenian society.
