Abstract

Summary

This article analyses Xenophon’s lexical choices in . It examines ancient and modern critical approaches to his language: Xenophon has often been criticized for lapses from ‘pure’ Attic, but this notion of a ‘pure’ Attic should be regarded as a conservative response to the increasing variety of spoken Attic in the fourth century BC. Xenophon’s lexical choices reflect the influence both of this ‘Great Attic’ (which developed into Greek) and of the non-parochial historiographical tradition inaugurated by Thucydides.
