Headword: Λαρυγγιῶ
Adler number: lambda,131
Translated headword: I will throttle
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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.
Notes:
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.
