Did the Greeks find it amusing, irritating, or threatening when they heard another Greek speaking in a different dialect? This book exploits the evidence of ancient Greek comedy in an attempt to answer some of the questions about ancient language attitudes. Colvin draws conclusions from a comparative study of the language of dialect speaking characters and other foreigners in Old Comedy, and on an examination of linguistic attitudes in other genres of Greek literature.CONTENTSEditions and Abbreviations 1 Investigating Language Attitude 2 The Language of Foreigners in Greek Literature 3 The Text of Aristophanes 4 Non-Attic Dialect in Aristophanes 5 Old Comedy: Shorter Passages and Fragments 6 Dialect in Old Comedy: Recapitulation App Sources for Laconian, Megarian, and Boeotian Dialect Short Glossary of Linguistic Terms References General Index Index of Greek Words
