Title: The Language of Greek Comedy
Edited By: Andreas Willi
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0199245479.html
Description:

The contributions to this volume by a team of international experts illustrate how the linguistic study of Greek comedy can deepen our knowledge of the intricate connections between the dramatic texts and their literary and socio-cultural environment. While the main focus is on comedy, the diversity of the approaches adopted ensures that much of the work applies to different genres and is relevant also to linguists and literary scholars.
