Abstract:

Annotation This book consists of linguistic case-studies of selected features of the language and meter of Plautus.

Topics discussed include Meyers and Luchss laws, split resolutions, contraction of est (is), enjambement, iambic shortening, and the pragmatic effects on the rhythmic organization of phrases
