Headword: *barbari/zei
Adler number: beta,104
Translated headword: behaves like a barbarian
Vetting Status: high
Meaning [he/she/it] thinks barbarian thoughts.[1] Thus Plato [sc. uses the word].[2]
"But barbarism is pronunciation with defects contrary to the custom of the Greeks of good repute; solecism is an expression constructed ungrammatically;"[3] such as "I walking around the wall fell."[4]
Greek Original:

[1] Same gloss in Timaeus, Platonic Lexicon, and Photius, Lexicon beta63; cf. generally alpha 3728. On the concept of "barbarian" in Greek thought, see OCD(4) s.v. (p.223).
[2] Plato, Alcibiades 1 120B, where the participle barbari/zontes occurs (see web address 1 below).
[3] Diogenes Laertius 7.59; again (including the added example) at sigma 782.
[4] Even worse in the Greek than it sounds in translation; "the wall" goes with "fell", not with "walking around".
