Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter summarises the most important results of the study of ideas on language, linguistics, and literature that are found in the works of Dionysius of Halicarnassus. For the study of the history of linguistics, Dionysius? works are valuable for two reasons. First, since Dionysius reflects so many theories from various disciplines, he is an important source of information for the ideas that constituted the linguistic knowledge of intellectuals at the end of the first century BC, a period from which, apart from Dionysius? works, only fragments of linguistic works survive. Second, his integration of ideas from different scholarly contexts perfectly illustrates the close connections between rhetoric, grammar, philosophy, and other ancient language disciplines.

Keywords: Dionysius; grammar; Halicarnassus; language disciplines; linguistics; literature; philosophy; rhetoric
