Headword: *dusei/kaston
Adler number: delta,1626
Translated headword: hard to make out
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning something] unsuitably represented.
Greek Original:
*dusei/kaston: a)prepw=s ei)kasqe/n.
The headword is neuter nominative/accusative singular, evidently quoted from somewhere; perhaps Dionysius of Halicarnassus, On Thucydides 29, applying this term to Thucydides' phrase kai\ ta\ e)fusteri/zonta/ pou (Thuc. 3.82.3).
The adjective features prominently in DH's critical vocabulary, esp. where Thucydides is concerned: see also On Thucydides 40 (on Thuc. 5.111), Lysias 4 (on Thucydides and Demosthenes in general terms), Second Letter to Ammaeus 3 (on Thucydides' choice of vocabulary).
Keywords: definition; dialects, grammar, and etymology; historiography; rhetoric
