I will shout down the other orators, he is saying; or I will cut out the pharynx and I will silence the orators. For when the pharynx has been cut, one cannot project one's voice.
Greek Original:
Λαρυγγιῶ: καταβοήσομαι, φησί, τῶν ἄλλων ῥητόρων: ἢ τὴν φάρυγγα ἐκτεμῶ καὶ κατασιγάσω τοὺς ῥήτορας. τμηθείσης γὰρ τῆς φάρυγγος, οὐχ οἷόν τε φωνὴν προί̈εσθαι.
From the scholia to Aristophanes, Knights 358, where the headword (of disputed meaning, as we see) occurs: "I will throttle the orators and I will harass Nikias". See web address 1. (For Nikias see nu 389.)
cf. lambda 130.
