    schema:reviewBody ""By examining linguistic variation in Aristophanic comedy, The Languages of Aristophanes opens up a new perspective on intra-dialectal diversity in Classical Attic Greek. Unlike previous research, it works with more fine-grained variational categories than 'literary' versus 'colloquial/spoken' language. 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. Thus, a methodology is developed which bypasses the difficulties caused by the literary nature of the raw material. At the same time, the resulting portrayal of the Attic dialect deepens our understanding of various socio-cultural phenomena reflected in Aristophanes' work, such as attitudes towards religion, the spread of 'sophistic' culture, the re-evaluation of gender roles, and the status of foreigners in Athenian society."--BOOK JACKET." ;
