Abstract


This paper investigates certain features of High Byzantine Greek as found in the speeches of Eustathios of Thessaloniki and his contemporaries. It endeavours to show these features are not necessarily hyper-correct forms, but that these authors had a full command of the constructions of the Classical Greek language, and built on these to create their own style.

Keywords


Byzantine Greek language, Eustathios
