Headword: Γλώττῃ πολεμίζων
Adler number: gamma,303
Translated headword: fighting a war with the tongue
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning someone who is] not making war on the tongue itself, but using the tongue like a weapon.
Greek Original:
Γλώττῃ πολεμίζων: οὐκ αὐτῇ τῇ γλώττῃ πολεμῶν, ἀλλὰ τῇ γλώττῃ καθάπερ ὅπλῳ χρώμενος.
Note:
The headword phrase comes from Aristophanes, Clouds 419 (web address 1), and the pedantic comment is from the scholia there (the dative is instrumental, not an indirect object).
