Greek in Sicily after the Roman Conquest

Project description

A close look at Roman domination on Greek

A comprehensive examination of epigraphic records will shed light on issues related to the survival of Greek in Sicily under Roman domination and its interaction with Latin. The EU-funded GISARC project will explore the impact of Roman domination on Greek in Sicily through a sociolinguistic perspective. By exploring the entire corpus of inscriptions from Sicily (combining linguistic analysis and study of historical and archaeological data within the field of sociolinguistics), it will also consider all the historical and archaeological evidence available. This will enable the project to assess the use of Greek in different types of text, and its status and function compared to Latin.
