Product description

Review

'A marvellously informative study of the contacts between Latin and other languages in the Roman world, exploring the linguistic diversity of the empire on a scale, and at a depth, that no one has done before … An extraordinarily impressive book and a masterful collection of material [demonstrating] just how central the study of language is to any proper understanding of the ancient world.' The Times Literary Supplement

' … J. N. Adams's splendid new book … it is essential for all who would study the linguistic situation in the Roman world.' London Review of Books

'… terrific book …'. JACT

'For the classical philologist or the linguist specializing in classical languages, who are its real audience, the book will prove invaluable and worth all; the considerable effort it will take to read and digest it. It is bound to become the standard by which any work on the topic of bilingualism in the ancient world can be judged: exhaustive, theoretically current, philologically exacting, and methodologically rigorous - a landmark publication.' Language in Society

'Among the most enjoyable features of his book are the unexpected, sometimes minor and obscure, texts that turn out to provide material for innovative study and important conclusions.' The Linguist

Book Description

This is the first book to deal systematically with problems of communication in the Roman world, in which numerous languages apart from Latin and Greek were spoken. Over a dozen languages are considered, and a wide range of cultural, historical and linguistic questions concerning the varying developments in bilingualism addressed.
