Latin Loanwords in Ancient Greek

Eleanor Dickey ’89

Latin Loanwords in Ancient Greek by Eleanor Dickey ’89 poses a number of questions: Why, when, and how did speakers of ancient Greek borrow words from Latin? Who used Latin loanwords, and how? Who avoided them, and why? How many words were borrowed, and what kinds of words? To answer them, this study offers the first comprehensive collection of evidence from papyri, inscriptions, and literature from the fifth century BC t the sixth century AD.
